Alpha-X Holster

Reviews: 5 of 5 Stars!(Current Reviews: 557)

In the past several years Double‑Alpha Academy's competition holsters have established the industry benchmark for advanced design and competitive-edge performance. The Race Master Holster has become the predominant competition holster worldwide for most of the top Champion shooters in the sport.

In their aggressive nature, DAA innovatively worked to offer upgrades and improvements to the Race Master Holster as time evolved. Such upgrades and refinements were made to the hanger system and more recently, to the patented insert block, making it magnetic and thus improving its performance even further.

DAA has now for 2017 taken their innovative design to a completely new level by launching the next totally new generation holster:  The DAA Alpha-X holster!

The ALPHA-X was born as a result of years of professional experience and market feedback, creating a new fresh, striking look while adding several meaningful performance upgrades.


New Ball Joint and Lock-Up Mechanism

The ball joint on the DAA Alpha-X Holster is designed to offer a wide range of motion, allowing the user to position the holster at just the right desired angle. The holster uses a much larger ball joint and pressure lug lock-up, which locks the ball firmly in place without damaging it. With this system even the smallest adjustments are made possible.

The ball joint has been relocated higher up, closer to the center of the holster. This reduces the torque and applied forces, contributing to the solid rigid feel of the holster. 

A large easy-to-reach one-screw locking system allows the user to adjust the holster position while wearing it.


Body Rail Height Adjustment

The DAA Alpha-X Holster accomplishes height adjustment through a rail system built directly into the side of the holster body. This provides an extended range of adjustment while reducing torque. The lock-up function is accomplished by an expanding dovetail mechanism that does not damage the rail itself.


Detachable Belt Hanger

The DAA Alpha-X Holster includes a two-piece belt hanger that can be dismantled by opening a single screw.  This allows all position settings to be maintained in addition to the flexibility of removing the holster body from the belt for easy space-saving transport. 

The Alpha-X Holster belt bracket is designed to fit only a 1.5” wide competition style belt. It will not fit on larger 1.75” or 2” belts unless personally modified through cutting a piece out of the belt. And, like all Race holsters, it should only be used on a firm, rigid, thick belt.


Interchangeable Color Logo Inserts

The DAA Alpha-X is available in black anodize body only, with a wide range of optional color logo inlays that insert into the hanger and body.  These laser-cut plastic inlays can be changed to suit one’s change in taste level or fashion.


The Same Race Master Insert Blocks!

The Alpha-X Holster uses the same DAA magnetic insert blocks as are used by the Race Master Holster. An Alpha-X Holster can be purchased with or without an insert block, making the upgrade easier and more affordable for shooters already using the DAA Race Master Holsters.


With its improved design, performance, simplicity and striking new looks, the DAA Alpha-X Holster is positioned to become the next Race Holster of choice for competitive shooters worldwide.

This is the best value for money from any Double Alpha Academy product I have purchased to date. Started using DAA gear in the IPSC Production Division using a CZ75 SP01 Shadow. Thereafter I switched to Standard Division and I shoot Open from time to time for fun (CZ75 TS and CzechMate). One insert was good for all of these guns! (modified it by filing off some material to use the TS). Top quality product as usual.

Purchased my second magnetic insert for a new Atlas Titan ....the new block did require fine tuning around the trigger block . Once I removed some material it works fine. Would recommend the new Alpha X to anyone!!

Excellent customer service with fast shipping. Holster came assembled and nicely packaged. Included very nice t-handled allen wrench for adjustments. Holster is a solid piece of kit. Very easy to adjust. Very well built. I will continue to shop with DAA. Thank you for your fantastic service and product!

What a great holster! I have inserts for two different pistols and both work great after just a little adjustment for the Para. Pistols fit really nice, draws quickly and once locked, stays locked. Having the advantage of switching the inserts to allow shooting more than one pistol for me was the quantifying difference to make me switch to Alpha-X.

Got the magnetic block for my Tanfoglio to replace the thumb screw block which I cursed on a regular basis. This one is much better. I do wish the fit was better. It is not going anywhere unless I make it but the pistol is not solid.
