Shooters Connection now offers Alpha X Holsters!

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!

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 belt bracket is designed to fit only on a 1.5” wide competition style belt. It will not fit on a 1.75” or a 2” belt unless you are prepared to cut a piece out of the belt. And, like all Race holsters, it should only be used on a firm, rigid, thick belt.


Interchangeable Color Logo Inserts

The Alpha-X is available in black anodize only, with an assortment of optional color inserts for the hanger and body logos. You can change these laser-cut plastic inserts whenever you choose.


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.

Lose fit

Review by CD3PO on 8/13/2021

First off I want to say that I saw the picture and know the difference between the two different types of trigger guards and I chose the correct one. I have both a checkmate and a tactical sports orange one of each style. The fit when you lock the pistol into the holster is extremely wobbly. I brought this to their attention and they sent me a video of how to modify the holster. The video was more about taking material out, and I need more additional material in place instead of removing it. I would look at other options if you have a Czechmate.

Versatile holster.

Review by Andrew S on 8/20/2020

So far I love this holster. Draw is very easy. Plenty of adjustment, and solid build quality. Not really a complaint, but it doesn’t click when I drop the gun in so I always lock it to make sure. I haven’t tried fitting it to my guns either though.

Great holster. Super Fast shipping!

Review by Vener on 8/4/2020

It was a really great transaction. Product is excellent, as expected but what made it great was the fast shipment and the discount that I got for being a new member.

DAA Alpha-X

Review by Kris M on 7/8/2020

Very easy to use and can be manipulated however the shooter needs. Wish it sat about an 1 3/4” lower.


Review by Rich on 5/26/2020

Honestly I was pretty disappointed with how much money I spend and I still had to do custom fitting you can get several holsters out there for a fraction of the price that fits better

Reply from Chuck- It is a pricey holster for a specific competition use. To be fair DAA and we do disclose the fitting requirement upfront. This holster will outperform most , if not all, others once its set up. The 6 rating isn't fair as it is one of , if not the best competition holster available.
