Overall

Ordering:
I obtained this holster from Airsplat, who recently started carrying these holsters. They are currently carrying models designed for the USP, 1911, M9, and Glock handguns, all priced at $24.99 at the time of this review. The holster was shipped out the day after it was ordered, and I received it via UPS ground a few days later.

Packaging:
The holster comes packaged in a plastic pouch with a zippered bottom, which gives you a convenient place to store the various pieces when not in use. The packaging has contact information for Blackhawk, as well as some basic info on the company's core values.

Holster Information:
The idea behind the current SERPA design is basically a polymer holster with an automatic locking system to keep the pistol from falling out. The lock is released by a push button release lever located on the right side of the holster. This lever is designed so that you can activate it with your trigger finger as you draw the gun from the holster. This leads to a smooth and easy draw, with extremely solid retention to prevent the pistol from falling out of the holster.

The holster is attached to your choice of mount by three screws, and can be adjusted to five different angles of cant. The basic kit includes the paddle and belt mounts, and MOLLE, drop leg, or other mount designs can be purchased online.


Belt mount

For my testing, I will predominantly be using the paddle mount, as it offers the best blend of comfort, interchangeability, and easy removal in my opinion. The paddle mount slips over your pants, with or without a belt, and locks in using the seams of your clothing. It is more secure with a belt as opposed to without one, but the option to use it without a belt is there. The belt mount has two adjustment points for using it with different sized belts, up to about 2.25".

Now, how does this thing hold the pistol in place? It uses a molded outer housing that is roughly in the same shape as the gun to keep it from moving around too much. Because it has an open muzzle end, it can be used with both the standard and compact USPs, as the grip and trigger guard are the same. The locking system is spring loaded, and as you push the pistol into the holster, it locks onto the trigger guard, keeping the gun from falling out. In order to remove it, just grab the grip, and use your trigger finger to push the button release the trigger guard catch. While pushing the button, pull the pistol up and out of the holster.

Proper Use:
So, how well does it hold a gun? Pretty damn well actually. I am using a TSD/HFC USP-Compact, and it fits inside the holster perfectly. There is about 5-6mm of front and back freeplay with the gun in the holster, but it stays locked in extremely well. The body of the holster covers the trigger to prevent accidental discharge, but you can still access the safety lever with the gun secured. Sliding it into the holster takes a tiny bit of force, but it goes in with a solid and comforting click. The body of the holster also covers most of the magazine release, to prevent it from accidentally being activated, which is a problem I've had with other holster designs.

Build Quality:
Yes, this holster is made almost entirely out of polymers, but it seems to be quite strong. It is flexible where it needs to be, but solid where it matters. Blackhawk! products come with a warranty as well, so if for some reason it breaks, you're covered. I honestly think that this thing wouldn't break if I tried, aside from melting it or hitting it with a sledgehammer.

Pros:
Very affordable - $25
Versatile mounting
Solid retention
Quick and clean draw
Optional mounts available

Cons:
Can't use with mounted accessories (lights, lasers, etc)
If the gun or holster is dirty, it could be difficult to use

Overall:
Holsters are basically a necessity if you plan on using a pistol with any regularity, and the Blackhawk! SERPA models work pretty dang well, especially for the price. I haven't had any major hiccups with it in my use thus far, and I suspect it will stay that way!
