Double Alpha Racer Single Stack Mag Pouch for 1911
The single stack “Classic” division is gaining momentum worldwide, and Double-Alpha is proud to rise to the challenge. While DAA does offer Single Stack Adaptors for the wide-body Race Master and Racer pouches, for many “die hard” single-stack fans that is not really good enough. They like the slim, classic size and feel of the single stack magazines – and carrying them in large bulky pouches, designed for magazines twice their width, simply does not really cut it.
The problem has always been that there are relatively few single stack pouches designed for competition use. You can find plenty of pouches for carry and service purposes, but a dedicated competition design for single stack has not been available until now!
DAA took their tested and proven innovative “pressure from the back” pouch design used in their Race Master and Racer lines, and adapted it for a new Single Stack Pouch. They custom tooled a new pouch body, made specifically for 1911 Single Stack magazines, into a pouch absolutely as slim as possible. They even did away with the inner side spacer, and ”hid” the head of the center screw in the sidewall. 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.
The pouch is ambidextrous and can be mounted on the adjustable belt hanger for right- or left-handed users. It can even be mounted at a 90-degree angle away from the body. The pouch utilizes the same belt hanger, as does the Racer Pouch, enjoying the solid sturdy design and rock solid angle adjustments that the hanger offers.
- Bullet nose out (Ben Style) and bullet nose forward (conventional) mounting option
- Works with Single Stack Mags
- Available Colors : Black, Red, Blue, Gray
- 2.5 oz approximate weight
IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE!
These pouches can be a bitch to set up. You may want to drill a hole in the pouch to make it easier to mount to your belt if you are going bullet nose out. We didn't need to drill a hole when we set them up in the shop, but it may actually be easier. Be aware that these pouches are a great idea, but in true DAA style they aren't easy to set up.
The DAA Single Stack Racer pouches will ONLY work 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 the DAA single stack Racer pouches!
Definitely better reloads with bullets nose out. Takes some getting used to if you're used to the other way. Do some drills, eventually shaves time. Installation is kind of a pain but worth it.
The mag pouches fit the 9mm single stack mags just fine and it is pretty easy to make a simple modification to use them bullet nose out style. I wouldn't use anything else, bought another 6 for my daughter
Had some serious sticking issues with the bladetech signature series and was recommended to spend the coin on the double alpha pouches and never look back. I wish I would've bought these for all my rigs years ago. Incredibly happy with the low profile design. The easy retention adjustment and minimal Velcro surface between the 2 belts make these the best I've ever used. Money well spent.
