    As always, your products are high quality and work as advertised. I own several magnetic block assemblies and change them per activity to use the weapon best suited for the course of fire. I love the complete rig and will only use your products in competition. Thank you for your attention to detail and craftsmanship!

    I love that you can swap out the blocks. Giving options for different firearms usage. I compete in USPSA Open Division and have swapped out pistols on occasion. These Alpha-X inserts work perfectly every time.

    Did not have a good experience with this holster. Ordered the insert for my Tanfoglio Limited along with the holster and the insert did not fit at all. Tried it on a friends Tanfoglio and same result. I contacted Customer Service to tell them I’m sending it back and to send me another one. I was told it may require some “modifications” to make it fit and that there is no “guarantee” that the next insert will fit properly. Considering the ridiculous price of this combination anyone purchasing this product would expect everything to fit properly and in working condition. Received the new insert and same result. It fits but it requires force to get it to lock. It has also worn the finish on my firearm trying to force it into the lock position. Not happy about any of it. I was considering ordering one for my Glock 17L but now I have changed my mind because I don’t want to go through the same issue again. How do you sell a “high quality” product and then expect the customer to have to modify it because the manufacturer can’t get it right. With that being said, once you “modify” the insert it can no longer be returned....not cool. [DAA Reply]: We are sorry to read you had such a negative experience. The issue is not a matter of our ability to fit the gun – but rather an inconsistency in the dimensions of the trigger guards on many gun models. Some gun manufacturers do not consider the outer dimensions of the trigger guard to be very critical, and so these are not tightly controlled by them, and are often finished by hand. Some guns will show a tolerance of 0.2-0.3mm or more in this area. Since our holsters requires a very precise fit to the trigger guard, we have no choice but to hold the dimensions tight – to fit the smallest of the frames we measure in one gun type or another. This leads to some customers having to custom fit their insert in order to get it to work well on their particular frame. And we always support these efforts as best we can. This is not something we can solve. We are very sorry to read this fitting issue lead you to reject the holster, which is today the leading holster in both IPSC and USPSA competition worldwide. A little fitting would have sorted it out for you.

    bought the insert for a Race Master to fit a Tanfoglio Gold Team open gun. I found it easy to install, it locks up tight but comes out like greased lightning when the beep sounds would definitely recommend this setup to anyone looking for a fast holster that is also very secure.

    I have the same issue with this as others have had. I am using this for a Gen 4 Glock and the fit is terrible. I had to remove a lot of material to get it to fit properly. I uderstood when ordering I would have to remove material upon ordering, but I never expected as much as had to be. After I got it to fit it still wouldn't go all the way down so the locking bar would lock. I had to again remove material from a different area to get it to lock. This created about a 1/4" of play when locked. It stays safely in the holster, but for the $50 cost it shouldn't require so much fitting in my opinion. Rating:

Alpha-X Holster

224.90In stock! Order now!

PLEASE NOTE: If you are ordering a holster or an insert block for a CZ TS checkmate or CZ TS Orange, please contact us first with a picture of your trigger guard area. CZ seem to be using two styles of frames for these pistols ,and without seeing your gun, we will not know which insert model you need. More details here: Click here for more details.

* This is a complete Alpha-X holster with insert block of choice.

In recent years Double‑Alpha Academy's competition holsters have been setting the benchmark for advanced design and cutting-edge performance. The Race Master Holster has become the go-to competition holster worldwide for many top Champion shooters in our sport.

Double-Alpha is known for not standing still, and over time the Race Master Holster has been improved. Upgrades and refinements were made to its hanger system and more recently, to the patented insert block, making it magnetic and improving its performance further.

And now, over the past few months, DAA has been working on the next generation holster.
We are very proud to introduce the Alpha-X holster!

The ALPHA-X was born of years of experience and market feedback, looking to take the Race Master Holster even further, creating a new fresh, striking look and adding several meaningful performance upgrades.

 

New Ball Joint and Lock-Up Mechanism

The ball joint of the Alpha-X offers a wide range of motion, allowing you to position your holster at just the right angle. This holster uses a much larger ball joint and a pressure lug lock-up, which locks the ball firmly without marking or damaging it. With this system even the smallest adjustments are always possible.

The ball joint is now located higher up, closer to the center of the holster. This reduces the torque and forces applied, contributing to the solid rigid feel of the holster. 

A large easy-to-reach one-screw locking system allows you to adjust the holster position even when wearing it.

 

Body Rail Height Adjustment

The Alpha-X achieves its height adjustment by means of a rail built directly into the side of the holster body itself. This offers an extended range of adjustment and again reduces torque and forces applied. Here too the lock up is achieved by an expanding dovetail mechanism that does not gouge or damage the rail.

 

Detachable Belt Hanger

The Alpha-X has a two-piece belt hanger which can be dismantled by opening a single screw, allowing all position settings to be maintained while removing the holster body from the belt for easier space-saving transport. 

The Alpha-X belt bracket is designed to fit only on a 1.5” wide competition style belt. It will not fit on a 1.75” or a 2” belt unless you are prepared to cut 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 Alpha-X is available in black anodize only, with an assortment of optional color inserts for the hanger and body logos. You can change these laser-cut plastic inserts whenever you choose.

 

The Same Race Master Insert Blocks!

The Alpha-X utilizes the same successful magnetic insert blocks used by the latest generation 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 our Race Master Holsters.

 

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

 

CRITICAL SAFETY WARNING

Read the following instructions carefully before using this holster or Insert Block:

  • Never holster a loaded firearm without first engaging its safety.
  • Check periodically to ensure your safety is functioning correctly.
  • Never disengage the safety of the firearm until well clear of the holster and the muzzle is pointing down range.
  • Make sure you are fully familiar with the correct use, and adjustment of your DAA Holster before attempting to use it with a loaded firearm.
  • Make sure that you have the correct holster/Insert model for your type of firearm.
  • Do not use a holster that is unsuited to your firearm, as that could result in unreliable retention or release which could lead to a fatal accident.
  • Never use a trigger shoe or a widened trigger with this holster.
  • Double check that the retention and release work well, particularly if any modifications have been made to your firearm.
  • Care must be taken to ensure the gun is placed properly when returned to the holster. It if it is not positioned correctly, it will not be held securely and may fall out.
  • Never holster the gun quickly or with force, as that increases the chance of making contact with the trigger.
  • Any adjustment or modification to the holster design may render it unsafe or cause malfunction.
  • Take care that the firearm is not dislodged or knocked when holstered, particularly when the holster’s safety lever is unlocked. As this holster has no muzzle support, take care that the muzzle of the gun is not bumped upwards, as this may dislodge the gun from the holster
  • Keep your fingers well clear of the trigger when holstering and drawing the firearm.
  • The holster should be locked when running or jumping with a holstered gun, or you should keep your hand on the gun’s grip to prevent it accidentally falling.
  • Handling a loaded firearm, and drawing it from a holster is inherently dangerous. You do so entirely at your own risk and responsibility.  
  • Liability is limited only to the replacement of this holster or parts thereof. No additional warranties are expressed or implied by the manufacturer or the distributors.
