Description 



Over the years, we occasionally heard from customers the following complaint: “sometimes, when I try to re-holster my gun, the slide lock is down, and I have to lift it manually”. This complaint was almost exclusively from Tanfoglio or Sig shooters.

As it turns out, the issue never was that the slide lock had fallen down, but rather that the edge of the trigger guard on these guns, being steel and often a little sharper than plastic guns, was catching on the upper tooth of the slide lock – rather than sliding past it to engage on the lower tooth, as it should. As a result, the slide lock would move down under the trigger guard, rather than engaging on it, forcing the user to first lift the slide lock all the way up before re-holstering.

This issue is caused because the slide lock is only lifted on the draw as far as it needs to go to release the gun. That means that upper tooth is displaced sideways only as far as was needed – and no more. Not all the way to the upper end of the track.

So – after some trial and error, research and development, we are pleased to offer you the new Magnetic Upgrade option for your Racer or Race-Master holsters.

This system incorporates a pair of powerful magnets, which are positioned to reject each other – creating what feels like a spring-loaded system – and two very distinct positions for the slide lock – all the way down – and ALL the way up.

Now, as the gun is released on the draw – the magnets continue to push the slide lock upwards – higher than the gun itself pulled it – thereby ensuring that when you come to re-holster, there is no chance of catching that upper tooth as you holster.

An additional benefit of this magnetic system is a distinctive “click” which is heard as you holster. Something that is common with other holsters, and requested by some for the Race Master as well.

Note that this Magnetic system replaces the option of the Tension adjustment Knob. It does away with the aluminum wedge and spring as well. Each Magnetic insert block ships with a thin plastic laser cut plate (with 3M adhesive), which can be applied on the outside of the holster body, to cover the hole previously used for the tension knob.

Not bad
Nice holster. Doesn’t lock up super tight. Also no matter how much I tighten the upper pivot point it still loosens up after 5-10 draws out of it. For $200 bucks I would think it would be a better holster. There’s not many if any options for my gun. This is all I could find. 


Response from Chuck- These single point holster will not lock up tight, none of them will, in fact the DAA racemaster and alpha-x(both use the same trigger blocks) are the tightest of these type of holsters. They do require some fitting most of the time to account for small variances in the trigger guards. To get a more stable fit they do offer the muzzle retention add on. On the pivot point. It does need to be locktighted and locked down. DAA has come out with the new Alpha x which has a better designed belt hanger.

Double Alpha Race Master Holster is perfect. Holds the firearm exactly for the best safety. I use this for USPSA and it is perfect.

Great race holster
At the time I purchased this this was the creme de la creme from DAA. I have been very satisfied with my racemaster. If I was to order a new holster today I would upgrade to the alpha x as I like it’s setu just a touch better.

Quality Holster
I got this for my CZ Czechmate and you will need the muzzle support, but with that this is a very good holster for Open. the mounting system gives you maximum grip for your outer belt to inner. Just get a new body insert and you have a holster for another gun. Really love this holster!

Excellent holster
Well worth the money, and a solid upgrade over their cheaper option. Well built and smooth draw, solid retention. I highly recommend this for open and limited shooters!
