In 2011 DAA introduced the all aluminum Race Master Mag Pouches, the first of their kind. Their innovative design is so different from other model pouches that all who used them were instantly fans.
However, their one shortcoming is their high price tag... A $60 pouch is not affordable by all, especially when one considers the need for 3 or 4 of them on your belt. Although ideally suited and matched to the DAA Race Master Holster, it was felt by DAA that a more economic version of this great mag pouch was needed to launch with the DAA Racer Holster. So DAA set out to develop and produce a new plastic molded version of this same winning design, and are now proud to introduce the all new DAA Racer Pouch, the perfect mate for the DAA Racer Holster!
The DAA Racer pouches borrow heavily from the Race Master Pouch. In fact, DAA took the very same body design, modified it to suite plastic mounding requirements, while maintaining the exact same unique “pressure from the back” adjustable holding system that has proven so successful. Interchangeable inserts allow the user to go from larger 2011 mags to smaller CZ / Tan mags. A single stack spacer is available as an accessory as well.
The Racer Pouch is completely ambidextrous, allowing easy mounting for both left or right hand users. And the pouch can even be mounted at 90 degrees away from the body, just as can be done in the Race Master version.
The belt-hanger of the pouch utilizes the same minimalist steel plate design, which eliminates separation between the inner and outer belt. The belt hanger has been simplified though - there is no ball joint as in the aluminum RM pouch, because that simply could not be achieved in plastic material in this size. However, the pouch can be adjusted for tilt in very small increments, allowing each shooter to find the right angle for their preference. Once the correct angle is set and the center screw tightened, the serrations in the connector piece lock up, preventing any possibility of the pouch rotating until the center screw is loosened several turns.
While these pouches may not offer the unique look and feel of the all aluminum Race Master pouches, or the ball joint tilt base, they are indeed robust and durable, and the performance that one can expect is every bit as good as that of its big brother. And with a price tag of almost half that of the Race Master pouches, the Racer Pouch will be the prefect choice for many.
Special Note: Glock or CZ TS Users
There may be a fit issue with Glock and CZ ST mags. The side spacer is not a problem - you can use the thin one (same as STI) and if you really want it tighter side to side (not really needed, but) you can also place something behind that that thin spacer to sort that out. But the issue is more with the pressure spacer - the one the spring is seated into. The thin one does not work - and the thick one is a slightly too thick. The solution is to remove a little material from the front of the thick spacer. One needs to remove about 1mm in total. This can be done with a belt sander, or best with a mill if one is available.
