DAA Alpha-X Holster
The Double Alpha Race Master Holster was used by more Open and Limited Division competitors at the 2015 and 2016 USPSA Nationals than any other holster. It's hard to keep a good thing a secret!
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!
We offer the new Alpha-X holster in black for right hand shooters with black logo inserts. Additional color inserts are available here.
Comes complete with insert block for your pistol or without insert block if you want to upgrade your existing Race Master holster to the new Alpha-X chassis.
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 is available in black anodize for right hand shooters only, with black logo inserts. Optional color inserts for the hanger and body logos are available. You can change these laser-cut plastic inserts whenever you choose, but we are currently only offering the black inserts.
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.
