So far all is well. 1st match top ten going slow getting used to the new type of holster. 2nd match was a steal match. Still going slow on my draw getting used to the holster. Still top ten. (4th) limited. Over all I think it’s going to be a faster draw when I get comfortable. Note the comfort is...

I bought this product for my firefly and as this is based on the P226 I bought it. It did not fit. 30mins later with a dremmel and it now fits. Although the guys at AA were helpful they were unsure if it would fit. With the limited amount of LBP available in the UK maybe some research needs to be...

I like the interchangeable blocks so I can use the same rig setup but for different pistols. Lock in and fit is good. Insertion past the finger guard is not as smooth as my Ghost holster with the metal type ball instead.

A super easy and practical way to adapt the holster to a new gun! I took the Sphinx 3000 model and with few Minutes and small mulling adapted it to the new Phoenix RedBack! This is still the best and most secured retention on the Ipsc speed holster market!

I have bought several of these over the years, and this particular one is for a CZ Shadow2 Pistol - in fact I bought 2. Whilst the build quality of the item and the ability to change blocks quickly is still great - this item did not fit the Shadow 2 without a deal of 'fettling' to make the gun...

Purchased 2 Inserts - for CZ Czechmate and Tanfoglio Xtreme custom gold team. For CZ it is perfect. No need to adjust at all. Can use also for TS Orange. Win Tanfoglio it is a big design mistake. If you have any Tan Xtreme line gun with square trigger guard be ready to spend a lot of time to cut...

Race Master / Alpha-X Insert Block Assembly (Magnetic)

(82)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy

Description:

PLEASE NOTE: If you are ordering a holster or an insert block for a CZ TS checkmate or CZ TS Orange, please contact us first with a picture of your trigger guard area. CZ seem to be using two styles of frames for these pistols ,and without seeing your gun, we will not know which insert model you need. More details here: Click here for more details.

View insert Block pistol compatibility: click here.

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.

CRITICAL SAFETY WARNING

Read the following instructions carefully before using this holster or Insert Block:

  • Never holster a loaded firearm without first engaging its safety.
  • Check periodically to ensure your safety is functioning correctly.
  • Never disengage the safety of the firearm until well clear of the holster and the muzzle is pointing down range.
  • Make sure you are fully familiar with the correct use, and adjustment of your DAA Holster before attempting to use it with a loaded firearm.
  • Make sure that you have the correct holster/Insert model for your type of firearm.
  • Do not use a holster that is unsuited to your firearm, as that could result in unreliable retention or release which could lead to a fatal accident.
  • Never use a trigger shoe or a widened trigger with this holster.
  • Double check that the retention and release work well, particularly if any modifications have been made to your firearm.
  • Care must be taken to ensure the gun is placed properly when returned to the holster. It if it is not positioned correctly, it will not be held securely and may fall out.
  • Never holster the gun quickly or with force, as that increases the chance of making contact with the trigger.
  • Any adjustment or modification to the holster design may render it unsafe or cause malfunction.
  • Take care that the firearm is not dislodged or knocked when holstered, particularly when the holster’s safety lever is unlocked. As this holster has no muzzle support, take care that the muzzle of the gun is not bumped upwards, as this may dislodge the gun from the holster
  • Keep your fingers well clear of the trigger when holstering and drawing the firearm.
  • The holster should be locked when running or jumping with a holstered gun, or you should keep your hand on the gun’s grip to prevent it accidentally falling.
  • Handling a loaded firearm, and drawing it from a holster is inherently dangerous. You do so entirely at your own risk and responsibility.  
  • Liability is limited only to the replacement of this holster or parts thereof. No additional warranties are expressed or implied by the manufacturer or the distributors.

So far all is well. 1st match top ten going slow getting used to the new type of holster. 2nd match was a steal match. Still going slow on my draw getting used to the holster. Still top ten. (4th) limited. Over all I think it’s going to be a faster draw when I get comfortable. Note the comfort is not just the holster. I went from a glock to a CZ TSO with a crazy awesome light trigger. So I’m being over cautious for now until I go full speed safely. But the holster is so nice. They responded very quick when I need to help selecting the right insert. Also the only place I found that give any discounts on these products. So that’s a plus. The company was highly recommended by my former local match director and former area coordinator / wealth of knowledge and no regrets. Don’t wait get the rig now and start running with it.

I have bought several of these over the years, and this particular one is for a CZ Shadow2 Pistol - in fact I bought 2. Whilst the build quality of the item and the ability to change blocks quickly is still great - this item did not fit the Shadow 2 without a deal of 'fettling' to make the gun fit properly. What was more interesting was that the 2 blocks required a different level of work to fit the same gun. So the Block itself is great - and still the best system in my opinion - but in this case was not the 'out of the box' fit I have come to expect.

The construction and locking mechanism is pretty cool and the holster feels solid. I had to order the extension because I felt the holster sat close for my open gun with gas pedal. Also I think users should be aware the your draw stroke might decide how happy you are with the holster. If you are the type like me that jams down on your gun when you draw you may require the thigh pad which helps with the gun getting stuck when you draw. Also be aware that the pt evo insert is finicky (combination of the weight and sharp edges of the triggerguard) so you will probably have to do some fitting and filing to get it to release smoothly if you draw like me. My friends use this with and they love them.

The block is not deep enough to allow the locking latch to slide all the way to the bottom of it's travel. The only way to get the locking latch to engage is to take material off the top of the insert. Could you please take notice of these concerns and revise the design of this block.

Purchased 2 Inserts - for CZ Czechmate and Tanfoglio Xtreme custom gold team. For CZ it is perfect. No need to adjust at all. Can use also for TS Orange. Win Tanfoglio it is a big design mistake. If you have any Tan Xtreme line gun with square trigger guard be ready to spend a lot of time to cut off at least 1/8\" along the entire side of the block in order to fit it. [DAA reply]: wrong insert was ordered - you should have selected the Stock III insert and not Stock II.
Models and Fitting

Q: I have one of the newer Sig X5 models. Will the Sig X5 insert block fir the new model?

A:, yes it will. In fact, we tested the new Sig X5 and X6 models and they all fit to the X5 insert block.
