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.
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.
Due to popular demand we are now pleased to offer you the DAA Super-Strong magnets, sold separately, for mounting on the DAA Alpha-Xi / Alpha-X / Race Master pouches, or any other type of base you care to use them on.
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 an Alpha-Xi / Alpha-X / 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.
