The Alpha-X / Race Master Holster - Magnetic Insert Block Assembly fits both the DAA Race Master and the newer DAA Alpha-X Holster bodies.
The Magnetic Insert Block Assembly works by two powerful magnets in opposition to give what feels like a spring-loaded system.
This system provides two distinct positions for the slide lock, all the way down, and all the way up.
The system also provides feedback to the competitor by way of an audible "click" so the users know the holster is in the correct position for locking the gun in place or re-holstering it.
NOTE: The insert 1911 Steel Frame - NARROW is designed for 1911's with narrow trigger guards such as the STI Trojan, STI Lawman etc. They can also provide a tighter fit for the standard 1911 but may require some minor fitting.
The following is an old video, but it does show the customisation process which is still relevant for the newer magnetic insert block assemblies:

Simple design that works.By: Greg Unicomb on 22 March 2016Using the magnetic insert for my Kimber 1911 is perfect for use in Action competition. A positive feel when locking in and a clean, quick release. Very easy to swap out inserts for my STI RangeMaster.
Good but not perfect3 July 2015With my S&W N frame inserting the gun is not as straightforward as expected, trigger guard must be kept in contact with right side for a clean lockup. Although secure, gun has some movement even when lock lever engaged. I haven't gone back to the non magnetic insert, so I think that sums it up.
