Starting May 2013, the DAA Race Master Holsters will ship with a new and improved hanger! (Gradual transition to this design can be expected over the next month or two)
Building on our combined experience from the Racer and Race Master lines, as well as range testing and customer feedback, we are pleased to now offer this modified and improved hanger.
The new 2013 Race Master Hanger combines the best features from the original Race Master hanger and the newer Racer Hanger. It retains the wide aluminum belt bracket, and features a modified attachment point which allows a wider range of tilt. An enbedded serated washer between belt-hanger and vertical rod ensure secure lock up. The round 10mm vertical rod allows the holster a wider range of rotation as well as about 16mm (2/3”) of additional downward range. The round ball-joint housing design eliminates fitting issues, and provides a secure lockup for the ball-joint, while at the same time providing a larger tilt range.
The Ball Joint pin now locks into the holster body by means of a larger M8 screw, which eliminates the need for the small wedge used there before.
And added to the hanger design, is the self adjusting thigh pad, designed to mould itself to your leg, providing all-day comfort.
The best just got better!
We are extremely proud to present the new DAA Race Master Competition Holster to the shooting world. Designed by Saul Kirsch, and with valuable input from Angus Hobdell, more than 30 years of top-level competition experience contributed to its design. After nearly two years in development, we can say with confidence that this is indeed the next stage in competition holster evolution. Try one, and we are sure you will agree!
We set out to develop a new holster with the following goals in mind:
• To offer the best and most advanced release system on the market
• To offer a wide range of position adjustments – and to hold those settings rock solid
• To offer both a fully locked safety feature and tension adjustment capabilities
• To allow the user to change from one gun type to another without having to buy a
complete new holster
• To look sharper and cooler than any other race holster out there
• Right hand model available in black, silver, blue and red colors / Left hand model is available in black color only
We are pleased to say that the final product offers all these features and much more!
Looking the Part!
The Race Master Holster is as attractive as it is functional. No expense was spared in the design and construction of this state-of-the-art product. The entire holster is CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel and then hard anodized to offer a long-lasting surface finish in a selection of Black, Blue, Red, or Titanium Grey colors.
Patent-Pending Locking Mechanism
At the very heart of the new Race Master Holster is a brand-new innovative Patent-pending locking system that offers a smooth clean release of the pistol and a solid grip on the gun when holstered.
Unlike other models, which rely on a muzzle support to hold the gun steady, or short holsters, which allow the gun to rock when holstered, the new Race Master holds the gun so steady, you cannot tell the pistol from the holster! And yet it draws upwards as smoothly as can be with almost no resistance at all.
The phenomenal locking is achieved by means of a unique sliding block, formed precisely around the front end of the trigger guard. This fitting is the reason for the gun’s incredible stability in the holster. As the gun is drawn, the block, which resides in an angled track, slides out to the side, smoothly releasing the trigger guard and allowing the gun to be drawn with only 6-8 mm (1/4”) of upward motion required to clear the holster.
One of the most important features of a competition holster is adjustability. Being able to position the gun just right can make the difference between a lightning-fast consistent draw or that of a poorly failed attempt.
The Race Master Holster offers almost unlimited adjustability. And, thanks to its rugged aluminum construction and large-thread screws, when you lock the holster in your chosen position on your belt, it stays put!
Unlike other holsters, the Race Master is designed to give you access to almost all the adjustment screws while you are wearing it on your belt. Without removing your belt, you can adjust the height of the gun and the distance from your body, and even unlock the ball-socket hinge and adjust any angle of the holster. This is a huge advantage in setting up your holster just right.
Thanks to the Patent-pending locking mechanism, the Race Master Holster offers you a secure lock/unlock safety lever as well as a tension adjustment turn-knob.
The spring-loaded lock/unlock safety lever is conveniently positioned just below the trigger guard, enabling you to release the lock with an upward flick of your finger as you close your hand around the gun. The spring-loaded lever immediately snaps into place, either locked or unlocked, ensuring secure positioning.
The large stainless steel knob rotates several turns, increasing or decreasing the weight of the draw. This gives you a wide range of possibilities; from totally resistant-free for those fast “draw-facing targets” stages to almost completely locked when you want more resistance on the draw.
