Why does the belt need to be so big?

Remember that your underbelt and gear also increase your waist dimension! As well, when the weather is foul, you may want to tuck extra layers of clothing underneath the belt. If in doubt, always choose the larger size. You can make a larger belt smaller but you can’t make a smaller one larger.

Using the method above should leave you an overlap of approximately 6-8”, and you want that so that the velcro has enough surface area to bond tightly and hold the weight of all your gear.

Magazine Pouches










Alpha-XiP Mag Pouch

Alpha-XiP Mag Pouch

$60

Black is in stock, colours are special order.

The DAA Alpha-XiP magazine pouch is a more affordable version of our flag-ship Alpha-Xi pouch. By incorporating an injection-moulded pouch body instead of the CNC machined aluminum and anodized pouch body of the Alpha-Xi, we are able to offer all the same great features at a substantially lower price!

The Polymer used in the pouch body of the Alpha-XiP is a glass-fiber reinforced PA66 material, which is extremely hard and durable. This allows us to use the same mounting system as used in the aluminum body. Other than the pouch body material itself, the Alpha XiP and Alpha Xi are identical. Both incorporate the same Aluminum ball-joint hanger and include a full set of spacers to support a wide array of magazines.

The Polymer body is not only cheaper than the aluminum option, but it also will not show scratches or wear over time as the aluminum tends to. And while it does not use color inlays as the Alpha-Xi does – it is currently available in 7 striking colors, including Black, Blue, Red, Grey, White, Purple and Orange.(NB - I only stock black, colours are special order, around 3 week delivery)

The Alpha XiP pouch body offers 8 connection points to choose from – three height positions each for Right-hand or Left-hand shooters, and two height options for bullets-out mounting. A Key-seat engagement is used in combination with the custom wide-head screw, to prevent any possible wiggle, movement or weakness.

The ball joint is held in the aluminum belt hanger using a pressure coupling with a large T25 Torx M6 Screw. This offers a totally secure lock up and the option to make minute adjustments to the pouch’s angle and tilt.

To further elevate the quality and durability of the product, the Allen screws have all been replaced with T20 and T25 Torx-head screws, and a custom made key which incorporates both these sizes is included.

The Alpha-XiP utilizes the wrap-around spacers, which align all magazine sizes in the center of the pouch body, while fully enveloping them with polymer, to prevent any possible binding and to create the smoothest draw of the magazine.

The spacer system incorporates a height-adjustable bridge support under the magazine, allowing the user to determine how deeply the magazine seats into the pouch.

Three sets of spacers are included as standard with every pouch, to fit all double-stack magazines (excluding the very large Glock/HK .45 mags). A single-stack spacer adaptor is available too and is sold as an accessory.




Alpha-Xi Metal Pouch

The Alpha-Xi magazine pouches have evolved from the Alpha-X mag pouches introduced in early 2018.

The new pouch has a striking modern look with large side cut-outs around the tension wheel. The smaller wheel used is not only convenient to rotate but now make it possible to easily mount a large magnet on the outside face of the pouch body.

The main advancement in the Alpha-Xi design is the manner in which the belt-hanger ball-joint attaches to the pouch body. In the new Alpha-Xi design, the ball-joint is attached using a custom-made wide-head screw which fits through the aluminum side wall of the pouch, making it extremely durable and strong.

The Alpha Xi pouch body offers 8 connection points to choose from – three height positions each for Right-hand or Left-hand shooters, and two height options for bullets-out mounting. A Key-seat engagement is used in combination with the custom wide-head screw, to prevent any possible wiggle, movement or weakness.

The ball joint is held in the aluminum belt hanger using a pressure coupling with a large T25 Torx M6 Screw. This offers a totally secure lock up and the option to make minute adjustments to the pouch’s angle and tilt.

To further elevate the quality and durability of the product, the Allen screws have all been replaced with T20 and T25 Torx-head screws, and a custom made key which incorporates both these sizes is included.

The Alpha-Xi utilizes the same wrap-around spacers (but not identical parts), which align all magazine sizes in the center of the pouch body, while fully enveloping them with polymer, to prevent any possible binding and to create the smoothest draw of the magazine.

The spacer system incorporates a height-adjustable bridge support under the magazine, allowing the user to determine how deeply the magazine seats into the pouch.

Three sets of spacers are included as standard with every pouch, to fit all double-stack magazines (excluding the very large Glock/HK .45 mags). A single stack spacer adaptor is available too and is sold as an accessory.

And finally, a dash of color and personalization can be added with the laser-cut plastic inlays, available for user installation in several colors, $7 extra.




Racer Single Stack mag pouch

Racer Single Stack mag pouch

A101364

$50

For those dedicating a rig specifically to Classic or not wanting spacers on their RaceMaster/Racer pouches, these are the ticket. All the features of the double stack pouch but designed for single only. A bit smaller and lighter which won't hurt when lugging all that gear around your waist.

This is a tooled new pouch body, custom made specifically for 1911 Single Stack magazines, a pouch absolutely as slim as possible. We even did away with the inner side spacer, and ”hid” the head of the center screw in the side wall. The entire pouch body measures only 20 mm wide! The opening of the pouch is beveled on three sides to facilitate easier insertion of the magazine into the pouch. The slick inner surface ensures smooth consistent release.

Please note!

These single stack pouches will work only with 1911 style Single stack magazines which follow the standard external dimensions! (roughly 13.7mm 0.54” wide, and 34.8mm 1.37” from back to front).

It has come to our attention that some manufacturers are shortening the front to back length of their tubes for the 9mm calibers – and these will not work in our single stack pouches!


Double Alpha Magnetic Mag Pouches

Magnetic Mag Pouch

#A100474

$50

Oh yeah, gotta have at LEAST one of these for those "leave the mag on the table and pick up and load..." stages. With a bunch of those at the nationals, these proved to be a second saver. I use one in the #2 spot and it holds two. A solution for "Where do I put my stripper mag?" that has plagued us for years. And they DO hold very tightly.

Double Stack Magnetic pouch

Double Stack Magnetic pouch

A102241

$50

This style has proven very successful for single stack magazines and take up less real estate on your belt than the conventional mounted pouches. Two 20mm round magnets hold the magazine firmly inside the pouch track for secure retention yet allowing a smooth and effective release. The mount is typical of the Racer/RaceMaster pouches allowing lots of adjustment for angle.


Single Stack Magnetic Pouch

Single Stack Magnetic Pouch

$45

It positions the magazine only in the 90 degree angle from the belt but has adjustment for tilt. Two small powerful magnets hold the magazine firmly in place while allowing it to rest inside its supporting track. The same high quality belt mount is used as with all DAA Racer mag pouches.

This narrow design allows more single stack mags than conventional front/back alignment. Can be used right or left handed.


Double Alpha Mag Pouches

Deluxe Magnetic Pouch

#A101164

$55

The DAA Deluxe Magnetic Pouch utilizes two powerful 32mm magnets to hold the magazine securely in place while providing a smoother release than that achieved from the larger standard Magnetic Pouch.

The lack of external or front pouch walls allow the pouches to be spaced that much closer together. Perfect for Standard or Production where one must wear the pouches behind the hip bone.

The pouch can be swivelled around the centre screw (lower magnet's middle) to angle the pouch as designed. The off-centre mounting point on the hanger offers the option of two heights to choose from. The pouch body is machined from solid Delrin and so is tough and durable. Available in Black only.

     

NOTE: Available for Right-Hand users only. Springfield XD magazines do NOT work on magnetic pouches.

Double Alpha Super-Strong Magnet
(FOR DOUBLE ALPHA OR OTHER MAG POUCHES)

Super-Strong Magnet

$35

Due to popular demand we are now pleased to offer you the DAA Super-Strong magnets, each sold separately, for mounting on the DAA Race Master pouches, or any other type of base you care to use them on. Does NOT include the pouch, only the magnet/adapter.

These Zinc plated magnets are incredibly strong, offering approx. 87kg of pull strength. With these magnets, you can slap on that magazine quickly and confidently and know that it will not fall off as you move. The magnets measure almost 50mm in diameter, and are 12mm thick (with their casing).


Fitting to a Race Master Pouch:

In the front of the pouch there is a 4.2mm hole, which can be used to attach the magnet to the pouch body. You will need to tap (thread) this hole using an M5 Tap. Do it carefully and slowly as the thread needs to be precise, as there is only a 2.5mm side wall to work with. once done, simply screw the magnet directly onto the front of your leading pouch. We suggest using a little LockTite on it, to keep the screw from opening.

Do not worry if the tip of the screw protrudes slightly into the pouch body - the magazine does not reach down far enough to hit it.


DAA 48mm Magnet Cover

DAA 48mm Magnet Cover

A103145

$15

Designed to perfectly fit on the DAA 48mm large magnets, this cover is custom made from durable nylon, rubber coated, and incorporates a laser-cut stainless-steel (430) DAA Logo.

The logo itself is what firmly holds the cover in place – being made of magnetic stainless-steel, and thus attracted to the magnet.

Most serious shooters carry one of these large magnets on their belts, as they are real time savers on pick-up stages. But let’s face it – those magnets can be a pain, picking up steel debris sticking to your car interior or those metal storage cupboards.

This cover does not completely eliminate the magnetic pull, but it greatly reduces it to where it’s no longer an issue.

The magnetic pull through the cover is still just strong enough to hold a magazine during a Load or Unload procedure, but not strong enough to be trustworthy when running.

So leave the cover on until that stage in which you need your pick-up magnet, pop the cover off before the stage, and drop it in your pocket until after you’re done.


Alpha Rail System

A102153

$25

The Alpha Rail System is a pouch mounting option allowing you to quickly click various types of pouches on and off your shooting belt. Ideal for 3 Gunners and shooters who wish to use their rig for multiple applications. Designed for 1.5” shooting belts allowing maximum contact with the velcro on inner/outer belt sets.

Now you can easily replace a pistol mag pouch with an AR pouch or shotshell holder in seconds.

Designed for all DAA mag pouches and shotgun ammo holders.

Includes:

  • 1 belt attachment part, complete w/2 steel brackets
  • 1 pouch attachment part
  • 1 serrated adaptor spacer
  • 1 central M5 mounting screw

AR15 Mag Pouch

A102150

$65

This pouch can be used with the mag bullet forward or backward, as shown. Made to the same high standard as the pistol Racer pouch, it works with both metal and polymer AR15 mags. Comes with the Alpha Rail mount system.


Magnetic Moon-clip holder

A101893

6-Shot .45 Magnetic Moon-clip holder

$38

This is one of those need revolver items wheel gunners have to have. The magnet is custom made, shaped specifically to fit between the rounds on a 6-shot moon clip. This increases surface area. If too tight, a little paper shim will reduce the magnetic pull.

The stem can be tilted to the sides to help you find your best angle. Going prone won’t damage the solidly built. You can utilize either of the two heights allowed by the mounting system.

Give one of these a try and you will be looking for more of them!


Magnetic Moon-clip holder

A101892

8-Shot Magnetic Moon-clip holder

$35

The popular magnetic Moon Clip Holder is now available for the 8 shot 9mm! These are suitable for the moon clips as used in the S&W 929, and can handle both 9mm and longer .38/.357 ammo.

The concept of holding the moon clip magnetically is not a new one, but we have taken it a couple of meaningful steps forward. Our magnet is custom made, shaped specifically to fit between the rounds on a 8-shot 9mm moon clip, providing increased surface contact area with the steel of moon-clip, for increased grip. The vertical stem is also shaped, countered to match the bullets held in the moon-clip. This serves to index them, forcing them into the same position all the time – improving your consistency as you grab them to reload.

The vertical stem can be tilted to the sides, allowing you to position the moon clip at the angle best suiting your needs. The solid material structure ensures these holders are extremely durable and very unlikely to break, even if you are forced to go prone.

The DAA belt clip hanger, as used on our Racer pouches, provides two height positions, and a secure solid attachment to your 1.5” belt. The very slim steel plates on the back of the belt hanger are of extra value for the revolver shooter, as so many moon clip holders are use side by side. This slim designed ensures your inner and outer belt stay well stuck together.

*The moon clip holders are shipped with a 4mm thick magnet. The retention strength this magnet creates will depend on the type of moon clip you are using, and how magnetic it’s steel is. We have found it strong enough for all moon clips we have tried.


10-Pack 929 Moon Clips

A101965

10-Pack 929 Moon Clips

$75

These 9mm Moon Clips are designed for the SW 929 9mm revolver.

Laser cut from hardened 413 stainless steel with hardness of 44RC make them very durable and resistant to deforming. The material is magnetic designed so the extractor ensures more overlap when used with DAA 8-shot magnetic moon clip holders.

Give one of these a try and you will be looking for more of them!
