Bullet Nose out... now for single stack
Posted 24 January 2014 - 11:45 AM
Terrible timing. I got in 3x of these from Shooter's Connection yesterday. Haven't used yet; will post a review once I do but initial impressions are they are the shit. Great build quality, very slick with no friction and nice ability to mount/cant for your pleasure. So far only hiccup in the design is no way to lock the tension adjustment.

The ones I just got are drilled for the mounting screw, but the instructions recommend drilling through the other side (bullet nose side/ front) also for easier access to the screw.
The old ones were not drilled, the new ones are. DAA should be out of the old stock so I think all the stuff we have showing up should have holes in it.
I'm running them bullets forward, so I haven't tried mounting then bullets out.

Mine showed up yesterday undrilled. I need to drill through the shelf-thingy the tension bar sits on also, the screws it comes with are wider than the shelf.
Yeah I noticed this as well. Took a rasp to it and opened things up. Pretty gay IMO to advertise a capability then not be able to do it out of the box.
The only problem I keep having is bullet nose out, they come a bit loose from the belt attachment. Blue locktite helps but I still need to tighten them occasionally.
Don't think I'm unhappy with them... my last mag carriers were Comp-crap and the DAA Racers are so much slicker, faster, and more secure.

They are a hassle to make them bullet nose out but they are capable. I did not have to drill the unit I made bullet nose out for the photo. I would think it would be easier to make bullet nose out with the hole drilled though.
I think the DAA pouches are a PITA in general but maybe the Ghost pouches are just super easy.

Since I love all things 1911, my tolerance for needing to mod something "ready to run out of the box" is quite high. If you didn't want to run them bullet nose out they work great right away. Really, I've not seen a better SS mag pouch, but I've not seen the full-on aluminum version of this one.

It's really not that hard Ben, I did mine and my brothers in like 10 minutes. Send me another pouch and I'll do a how to video. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Yeah, it just took a drill bit wide enough for the screws. They save alot more space on the belt than the Blade-techs I had before.
