Alpha-X Holster

* 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.

NOTE: If you are ordering a holster or an insert block for a CZ TS checkmate, be advised the 2017 frame has changed. CRITICAL SAFETY WARNING

Never holster a loaded firearm without first engaging its safety.

A quality Product through and through. It functions flawlessly. A had a Guga Ribas Coldre holster before but the Alpha-X holster is on a much, much higher quality level. Highly recommended!

I love my Alpha X holster. I have used it with my various airsoft Hi Capa pistols, and it worked with all models with no problems. I recently changed my gun to a Tangfolio, and resisted the option of purchasing a holster of a different make. I bought the magnetic assembly for the Tangfolio square trigger guard and it duly arrived. The gun would not lock into the holster, and after some checking it was because the trigger guard was too wide and the gun did not sit down enough to activate the mechanism. I reluctantly resolved to return the insert and order the alternative maker holster. Having thought about this I decided to watch the various DAA videos, get out my trusty Dremel and get to work. After all, the block was a reasonable price and the worse thing that could happen would be I ruined it. After some serious fettling the gun now slips nicely into the holster, locks in place - though I have left the lock just a little on the stiff side so the it will wear in naturally. It would have been nicer to have the gun fit from the start - as you can now see where it has been worked on - but I can now use my Alpha X for my new gun and all is well.

I am very impressed with the Alpha X. Since I've been using an XDm for Limited Division, it's been an uphill battle to find a good race holster for it. I tried 3 others before finally going to the DAA. I wish I'd just started there. It would've saved me the money that I petered away selling those others at a loss. Every other holster either had a lot of drag during the drawstroke, or was so loose that the gun was rattling around in it (Not exactly a confidence-booster when you have to take a few steps with the gun holstered and you're worrying about it rattling loose. Now if we can just get USPSA to go to IPSC rules for Production Division holsters....
