As the saying goes, you get what you pay for! And you sure do with this holster set up. Very well made, strong, which you can move to suit your own preference. Comes with its own Allen keys to tighten and lock fixings in place.

I’m pretty new to these type holsters, but I was very impressed with the durability and looks of this holster. There is no doubt in my mind I would recommend this holster to anyone looking for a new speed holster. Couldn’t be happier with the product!

Extremely well made . Yes on the expensive side but what ins't in the shooting sports. You can see the quality as soon as you open the box, but in case you cant, just pick it up and you will immediately feel it. I wish DA would make an ELS hanger conversion for the holster as they do for the...

Good holster. Most expensive holster I know of. Only issue is sometimes the gun doesnt drop into the holster easily and click in, it takes a few times of trying. When you are at a match standing in the box with 10 people watching and you cant holster your pistol kind of embarassing. I also have...

Bought the Alpha X and pad for my STI's. Super neat holster. Easy to use, locks pistols securely and takes the bother away of a kydex holster. I have items in my wish list to further add to this rig. Pretty neat engineering! My shooting buddy liked mine so much he purchased a rig too.

Alpha-X Holster

(71)
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.

You can see the quality as soon as you open the box, but in case you cant, just pick it up and you will immediately feel it. I wish DA would make an ELS hanger conversion for the holster as they do for the mag pouches. I shoot multiple disciplines so love have the flexibility of modular equipment.

Good holster. Most expensive holster I know of. Only issue is sometimes the gun doesnt drop into the holster easily and click in, it takes a few times of trying. When you are at a match standing in the box with 10 people watching and you cant holster your pistol kind of embarassing. I also have the CR Speed holster, the double alpha has better retention but the CR Speed drops in easier and costs half the price. Pros and cons.

I needed an additional race holster due to an increase in the number of hand gun disciplines I am now shooting and was initially reluctant to move away from my Racemaster, as I have been so very happy with it. But after encouragement from others I ordered the Alpha - X and so far, I am very pleased with it. It is every bit as good as the Racemaster, and has some very good features that my previous holster did not, especially for packing in luggage and consequent re-assembly.

Great holster fits my race guns and limited guns perfect and secure. Something that is not mentioned is you need two parts now the holster is $260.00 You will need the thigh pad the extension ball joint if you are running a open gun with steel grips. My experience with my open guns is that the muzzle is digging into my leg so the thigh pad helps if you wrap it with pipe insulation. Also the ball joint extension helps to get the gun away form your leg.
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...
