Race Master Holster- the best IPSC Competition Holster money could buy!
Building on our combined experience from the Racer and Race Master lines, as well as range testing and customer feedback, we are pleased to now offer this modified and improved hanger.
The 2013 Race Master Hanger combines the best features from the original Race Master hanger and the newer Racer Hanger. It retains the wide aluminum belt bracket, and features a modified attachment point which allows a wider range of tilt. An embedded serated washer between belt-hanger and vertical rod ensure secure lock up. The round 10mm vertical rod allows the holster a wider range of rotation as well as about 16mm (2/3”) of additional downward range. The round ball-joint housing design eliminates fitting issues, and provides a secure lockup for the ball-joint, while at the same time providing a larger tilt range.
The Ball Joint pin now locks into the holster body by means of a larger M8 screw, which eliminates the need for the small wedge used there before.
And added to the hanger design, is the self adjusting thigh pad, designed to mould itself to your leg, providing all-day comfort.
The best just got better!

Realizing a Dream! Designed by Saul Kirsch, and with valuable input from Angus Hobdell, more than 30 years of top-level competition experience contributed to its design. After nearly two years in development, we can say with confidence that this is indeed the next stage in competition holster evolution. Try one, and we are sure you will agree!

We set out to develop a new holster with the following goals in mind:
• To offer the best and most advanced release system on the market
• To offer a wide range of position adjustments – and to hold those settings rock solid
• To offer both a fully locked safety feature and tension adjustment capabilities
• To allow the user to change from one gun type to another without having to buy a complete new holster
• To look sharper and cooler than any other race holster out there

We are pleased to say that the final product offers all these features and more.

Looking the Part!
The Race Master Holster is as attractive as it is functional. No expense was spared in the design and construction of this state-of-the-art product. The entire holster is CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel and hard anodized to offer a long-lasting surface finish in Black, Blue, Red, or Silver.

Patent-Pending Locking Mechanism
At the very heart of the new Race Master Holster is a brandnew innovative patent-pending locking system that offers a smooth clean release of the pistol and a solid grip on the gun when holstered.

Unlike other models which rely on a muzzle support to hold the gun steady, or short holsters which allow the gun to rock when holstered, the new Race Master holds the gun so steady, you cannot tell the pistol from the holster! And yet it draws upwards as smoothly as can be with almost no resistance at all.

The phenomenal locking is achieved by means of a unique sliding block, formed precisely around the front end of the trigger guard. This fitting is the reason for the gun’s incredible stability in the holster. As the gun is drawn, the block, which resides in an angled track, slides out to the side, smoothly releasing the trigger guard and allowing the gun to be drawn with only 6-8 mm (1/4”) of upward motion required to clear the holster.

Unlimited Adjustability
One of the most important features of a competition holster is adjustability. Being able to position the gun just right can make the difference between a lightning-fast consistent draw or a poor failed attempt.

The Race Master Holster offers almost unlimited adjustability. And, thanks to its rugged aluminum construction and large-thread screws, when you lock the holster in your chosen position, it stays put!

Unlike other holsters, the Race Master is designed to give you access to almost all the adjustment screws while you are wearing it on your belt. Without removing your belt, you can adjust the height of the gun and the distance from your body, and even unlock the ball-socket hinge and adjust any angle of the holster. This is a huge advantage in setting up your holster just right.

Pistol Retention
Thanks to the patent-pending locking mechanism, the Race Master Holster offers you a secure lock/unlock safety lever as well as a tension adjustment turn-knob. The spring-loaded lock/unlock safety lever is conveniently positioned just below the trigger guard, enabling you to release the lock with an upward flick of your finger as you close your hand around the gun. The spring-loaded lever immediately snaps into place, either locked or unlocked, ensuring secure positioning. The large stainless steel knob rotates several turns, increasing or decreasing the weight of the draw. This gives you a wide range of possibilities, from totally resistant-free for those fast “draw-facing targets” stages to almost completely locked when you want more resistance on the draw.

Advanced Belt Attachment
The Race Master belt-hanger is sleek and modern, showing off the pattern and color of your shooting belt. But it is designed for more than looks alone. The hanger is attached to the belt by means of two spring-steel flat clasps that are screw-tightened on the inside of the shooting belt. This design prevents any separation between the inner and outer belts, ensuring that the Velcro layers firmly hold together at this crucial point. The range of tightening provided by the four screws guarantees that you can tighten and lock the holster rock steady on any 1.5” shooting belt. This design allows you to assemble your holster on your belt at the designated position without struggling to slide a tight-fitting belt-hanger the length of your belt. The lack of any bulk on the inner side makes this hanger more comfortable for extended wear than any other comparable product.

Gun Compatibility While the Race Master Holster is gun-specific, it is designed to enable you to switch from one gun to another without having to buy a complete new holster. All you have to do is change the relatively inexpensive locking-block assembly, available separately. This flexibility is also a great advantage for resellers - they no longer need to stock a range of different models, as they can simply change the locking-block assembly as needed.

You can now order your holster with a personalized logo and/or name. Click Here to read more…

We use one RM in blue and one in red. First looks: simply elegant. We specifically chose this holsters, to fit with the RM pouches and DAA belts - since we wanted our rig to look "sporty". We do not like the IPSC equipment to look "tactical" - hey: we are sports shooters. The build of all DAA components is excellent, but you need to get used to adjust it and to tighten the screws. What also counts is the sales service of DAA. Saul Kirsch and his team are a bunch of competent and very helpful fellows. Thank you guys.

Coming from a CR Speed holster (and going back to it) I was disappointed in the RM. It doesn't have a positive, solid feel or click when you holster the gun. You must try the lock to determine if the gun is fully inserted and secure. The lock lever is tiny and in a position that is vulnerable to being clicked off by accident. Any bump on the barrel or grip will dislodge the gun unless you crank down the tension adjustment (be super careful on seated starts or any unusual start position!) I suppose this is why DAA now makes a muzzle guard as an aftermarket fix. I'm told the magnetic upgrade is nicer. But its a shame to have to spend another $60 to fix a substandard product. Also, 3 different sized hex wrenches to make all the adjustments? Surely some simplification is in order here.

I love my race master it is a great product and whenever I talk to someone looking for a holster I recommend the race master. I especially like the interchangeable blocks definitely a plus.

I purchased this product for my S&W 929 revolver. I was unable to find a left-hand competition holster that would work for my 6.5 inch barrel. Instead of ordering a custom holster from a US manufacture, I purchased the Race Master. I was hesitant, at first because of the price. Now, after using the holster for several months, I have no regrets. It is, by far, the best holster I have ever used. I have never had a problem with it in any way. I am amazed by how well the holster locks my revolver in. I have a CR Speed WSM II holster for my STI that is nowhere close to the performance and security of the Race Master. I purchased the extended support for the revolver, which fit perfectly. The only negative thing I had to do is go back to my old 1.5 inch holster belt from my new 1.75 inch tactical belt. A very small price to pay for a great product! I wish I could post a picture of my rig which includes a James Austin Moon Clip Server. An awesome setup!

I have the RaceMaster holster and have found it to be super adjustable on so many levels. It took me a bit of time to finally get it where I really wanted it to be, but once it is dialed in, then you are golden. Certainly need to add a drop of locktite to the set screws once you are happy with it. I did have it drop off at one point. The screws can loosen up and I would always check your rig every time no matter what you use as a point of safety. After I used the lock tite on the adjustments, I have never had a problem with it coming loose. Quality.

Holster is othervise really good, but the locking mechanism tends to lower itself and you have to manually draw the lock up before you insert the gun. I have extended the screw so that I can pull the lock up and then insert the gun. Good thing is that when you use magnetic magazine holders, you can change the gun type just by changing the insert.
