I am very impressed with the Alpha X. Since I've been using an XDm for Limited Division, it's been an uphill battle to find a good race holster for it. I tried 3 others before finally going to the DAA. I wish I'd just started there. It would've saved me the money that I petered away selling those...

The Alpha X is perfection in every way!! I shoot a Glock in the Limited division, USPSA, and after adjusting it to my liking the draws are smooth and fast. Since I shoot a polymer style gun the insert block took a little fine tuning than say a 2011 but with a little patience it fits perfectly....

The DAA Alpha-X Holster is perfect for my Springfield Armory XD(M) 5.25" custom firearm. This XD(M) was customized and turned into a USPSA Competition Open Division pistol. I love the way the gun is supported and secure. I highly recommend this holster.

I recently bought two Alpha X holsters for my STI DVC Steel and Volquartsen Scorpion. Being new to competive these are my first full rigs (I also bought belts, including one to set up my 929, and mag pouches for my STI) so I have nothing to compare them to from the past. I am really impressed...

I shoot ICORE & USPSA revolver division with a Smith 929. I was really skeptical about hanging such a large & heavy gun on a race-holster, but the Alpha-X has proven to be rock solid. Bending over, resetting steel, pasting targets, whatever, the gun gun won't budge until I grab for it, then the...

Alpha-X Holster

(74)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy

Description:

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.

After years of trend setting benchmarks in the competitive holster industry, DAA has gone a step further, with the launching of the DAA Alpha-X Holster.

The Alpha-X incorporates upgrades and refinements creating a new fresh, striking look while adding several meaningful performance upgrades.

Body Rail Height Adjustment

A rail built directly into the side of the Alpha-X holster body itself allows height adjustment.  This offers an extended range of vertical movement and reduces torque and forces applied. The lock up is achieved by an expanding dovetail mechanism that does not gouge or damage the rail.

New Ball Joint and Lock-Up Mechanism

The ball joint of the Alpha-X offers a wide range of motion, allowing the user to position the holster at the precise right angle desired. The Alpha-X holster uses a larger ball joint and a pressure lug lock-up system, which locks the ball firmly in place without marking or damaging the holster. Even the smallest adjustments are easily possible.

With the ball joint is now located higher and closer to the center of the holster, it reduces the torque and forces applied, contributing to the rigidity of the holster. 

A large easy-to-reach one-screw locking system allows it to be adjusted into the desired position, even while wearing it.

Detachable Belt Hanger

The DAA Alpha-X Holster is designed with a two-piece belt hanger which can be disassembled easily by opening a single screw.  All position settings are maintained while removing the holster body from the belt itself for easy space-saving transport. 

The Alpha-X belt bracket is designed to fit only 1.5” wide competition style belts. It will not fit on 1.75” or 2” belts unless the belts are modified by cutting a piece out of the belt. As DAA recommends for all of its Race holsters, this belt hanger should only be used on a firm, rigid, thick belts.

Interchangeable Color Logo Inlays

The Alpha-X holster body is designed in black anodized finish only. To offer a unique colorful accent, an assortment of color inlays is offered. These optional colored inlays can be changed as desired, but when done so are not normally reusable. They are laser-cut plastic inlay inserts which come in a full range of colors.

The Same Race Master Insert Blocks!

The DAA Alpha-X Holster uses the same DAA magnetic insert blocks as used on 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 users who already have the Race Master Holster.

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.

I am very impressed with the Alpha X. Since I've been using an XDm for Limited Division, it's been an uphill battle to find a good race holster for it. I tried 3 others before finally going to the DAA. I wish I'd just started there. It would've saved me the money that I petered away selling those others at a loss. Every other holster either had a lot of drag during the drawstroke, or was so loose that the gun was rattling around in it (Not exactly a confidence-booster when you have to take a few steps with the gun holstered and you're worrying about it rattling loose. Now if we can just get USPSA to go to IPSC rules for Production Division holsters....

The Alpha X is perfection in every way!! I shoot a Glock in the Limited division, USPSA, and after adjusting it to my liking the draws are smooth and fast. Since I shoot a polymer style gun the insert block took a little fine tuning than say a 2011 but with a little patience it fits perfectly. The depth and internal width had to be increased slightly and I polished the insert block with very fine wet/dry sandpaper and it's like glass. If you shoot in a division that allows a race holster, look no further the Alpha X is the standard by which all others will be measured.

This is the first holster I have purchased to use in competitive shooting. I am very pleased with the Alpha X holster as it is so versatile and I am able to use it in many shooting disciplines. The holster is adjustable to accommodate any shooter and the settings are easy to lock down and remain locked into position. The holster is made with the finest quality materials and finished to prevent marking any weapon placed into it. Finally, I am left handed and product selection for the left handed world is limited at best. I would recommend anyone looking for a quality rig to consider the Alpha X holster and the premium belt as you will not be disappointed. Strongly recommended for the left handed shooter.

Being new to competive these are my first full rigs (I also bought belts, including one to set up my 929, and mag pouches for my STI) so I have nothing to compare them to from the past. I am really impressed with all of the products I've purchased. Not only do they look good, they are high quality and easy to set up and use. The customer service you get from Double Alpha is the best. I made a mistake on my belt purchases by ordering extra inner belts. Customer service contacted me before they shipped my order to make sure I realized I over ordered, corrected the amount, and processed a refund on the spot. I am just so impressed with everything about this company I will be a repeat customer for as long as I shoot.

Bending over, resetting steel, pasting targets, whatever, the gun gun won't budge until I grab for it, then the draw is as fast as I can make it. I am so impressed that when my Limited gun arrives I intend to buy another Alpha-X.

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.
General questions

Q: Which gun types the Alpha-X supports?

A: The Alpha-X holster uses the very same insert blocks as the Race Master holsters therefore it supports all Race Master holster gun types. 

Q: Are the insert blocks...
