Alpha-X Holster


Alpha-X Holster, bare frame only


Pistol inserts extra

$95 and up

Colour inserts

$5 extra

Note: You can personalize your holster with inserts from the list further down the page

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.

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.


If you are ordering a holster or an insert block for a CZ TS Czechmate 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. Without seeing your gun, we will not know which insert model you need.

You need to attach the picture similar to one of these.


Please choose from:
Black - Red - Blue - Yellow        
- Silver - Gold - Copper


Alpha-X Holster Thigh Pad

Holster Thigh Pad



The thight pad is compact and easy to install, no tools required. It helps keep the holster a bit more stable and wonít let it dig into your leg.

A nice addition I added to my own rig!

Extended Ball-Joint

Extended Ball-Joint



This ball piece positions your Alpha-X holster further from the body. It improves adjustability by about 8mm.

Standard Magnetic Insert

Standard Magnetic Insert

$95 and up

SW revolver and non-standard sizes


All inserts fit both Race Master and Alpha-X holsters.

The magnetic insert for the RaceMaster and Alpha-X holsters is one of its keys to success. In less than 5 minutes, I can change my STI set up to CZ Shadow, Glock, etc. Note: This is REALLY easy. My hands can do ONLY two things: feed me and shoot, and I manage to switch out my holster insert just fine:)

Many owners are now able to use one complete rig and shoot various guns out of the same holster by just changing the trigger block. Keep this in mind when you are thinking about a new holster.

These MAGNETIC holster inserts take the place of the traditional inserts and are not only physically solid but also mechanically sound. If you want to upgrade your RaceMaster or Alpha-X, this is a great addition.

Racer Holster

Racer Holster


At the heart of the new DAA Racer Holster lies the same innovative patent pending mechanism that makes the Race Master stand head and shoulders above the competition. But what the Race Master achieves with interchangeable Delrin inserts inside an aluminum housing, the Racer does with no housing at all. Same peak-performance driven result, without the high costs of machining.

We reduced costs further by eliminating the large external tension adjustment knob, which many deemed unnecessary, and set the tension to light (this can be adjusted internally for the users preference). The same locking system allows the DAA Racer holster to hold the gun by only its trigger guard, just as steady and secure as the Race Master does, and the same spring loaded safety is conveniently positioned in the rear of the holster, where it can be easily and swiftly accessed on the draw.

Where other manufacturers go to plastic to reduce costs on their hanger - we did not. We believe that one of the most important features in a competition holster is the ability to position it just right for you, and then to lock it up rock solid on your shooting belt.

We redesigned the hanger to reduce costs, however it remains an all aluminum structure and utilizes the same ball-joint design the Race Master users. In fact, the new hanger with the round vertical rod, offers a wider range of adjustment that the Race Masterís system.

The holster is shipped with a detachable thigh pad, which pivots within a range of about 40 deg, to mould itself to your thigh as you move, reducing movement of the holster and increasing comfort.

The belt hanger is again a variant of the successful Race Master design, just made narrower and lighter. Our now familiar minimalist steel locking plates on the inside, allow you to maintain good contact between your inner and outer shooting belt.

The entire holster comes in at just 230gr, making it the lightest race holster on the market!

And while no interchangeable blocks are available for the Racer holster, a wide range of guns are supported, including the STI, SV, 1911, Beretta 92F, BUL M5, SPS, BUL SAS, Caspian, CZ SP01, Glock, STI GP6, Para Ord, S&W M&P, S&W L frame, S&W N frame, SIG 226, SIG X5, Tanfoglio, Tanfoglio Stock III, and the Springfield XDM.

Available only in black, with a splash of color and elegance add by the laser-cut side plate, available in Black, Blue, Silver or Red. Custom name and logo engraving is available at additional costs.

PDR PRO II Holster

PDR PRO II Holster


This is the go-to holster for the Shadow2 and many other popular models. It has been well upgraded and redesigned and allows more adjustment. Belt to holster fit is improved for contact inner/outer velcro on your belt. The PDR-PROII allows better hand contact to the pistol grip allowing a high thumb grip so important to a solid draw. Black only, RH and LH available.

From DAA:
Hi Murray,

Great gun, the Shadow2, but it does seem like no two are alike. I see issues like this with both the PDR fit and the Alpha X inserts, and measuring guns we get our hands on clearly shows why. Lots of external variancesÖ

A little fitting to the body of the PDR PRO II should solve the issue for your customer, quickly and easily. This video shows how it is to be done:

The "offset" feature of this holster allows for a greater degree of outward cant, which positions the grip of your pistol away from the body in a vertical position for more positive indexing. This popular holster also features a "drop", which lowers the placement of the pistol for an easier reach, allowing the arm to remain more extended.

The Drop & Offset holster is very popular for range work and is perfect for women's carry. The loop is adjustable for three different cants, Straight Drop, FBI cant, Muzzle Forward.

Also available in left hand for most standard models; Colt, CZSP01 and Glock.
