Disclaimer- I use this holster myself for STI. I often shoot 2 different STI guns at a local match so it works good for me. BUT , this holster is such a precise fit it can be some work to get it adjusted and fit to your gun. If you have grips that have been modified it may not work for you. Especially if the front of the trigger guard has been modified. I suggest you watch the videos and be willing to do the fitting or even replace your modified STI grip to get it to work. We will not take these back once they have been fit or adjusted. If there is a warranty issue DAA will handle that directly. So please order with caution. They are great but take some fine tuning to your individual gun sometimes. Chuck Bradley

Update- Despite the disclaimer made above I am still having customers buy this holster and getting upset that it isnt a plug and play holster and requires fitting to work on some guns. I know its an expensive holster but it is not a magical fix. Its like a custom, precision part that needs fitting. Please do not buy this holster unless you understand this. Chuck

We have found that there are several types of para frames out on the market. It seems the older frames had a trigger guard which was pretty much identical to the standard 1911 as made by Colt and Springfield and many others. However, more recent para's have a thinner trigger guard. The shape and contour is still the same, but it is actually narrower. Where a 1911 is about 3mm thick, the newer paras are about 2.5mm. This half mm is enough to make the gun rock a lot in our holster, as there is no muzzle support. Not an ideal situation all around. We deal with lots of 1911 issues - there are so many models out there... STI makes several types of 1911 guns, and they themselves have 3 or 4 types of trigger guards! Compounding the problem is the fact that due to the round profile of the 1911/para trigger guard, even with a very good fit in the holster, the gun can still rotate a little around the radios of the trigger guard itself. That is a problem as well. It kind of depends on what the expectations of the customer are, and what he is comparing to. Our holster will hold the 2011 frame much better. But if you compare our 1911 to other race holsters - ours is better.

From DAA-

We are extremely proud to present our new Race Master Competition Holster to the shooting world. 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

The blocks do work in both the right and left hand models.

The following video links provide additional information in customization of your holster, adjustments that may be needed to it, and block insert replacement.

Double Alpha Race Master Holster
This is the best available holster in the market for competition. However it can and should be improved.The area between the front of the insert block assembly and the holster body has to be smoothed out. It scrapes the gun damaging bluing.The inner area of the support arm that makes contact with your pants has to have its corners rounded and smoothed out. This area bites into your pants and tears them. All this being said this holster is fast and very secure. It is a darn pitty that it was not put out for testing so that these small imperfections could have been fixed in its design. Response- I was talking to a fellow shooter who got one of the first models and we compared mine to his. Mine does not have the sharp edge to cut your pants, the arm does not let the body drop down that far any longer.
