Putting the upcoming new Coalition Forces through its paces

At the range yesterday. Just a quick iPhone photo that my buddy Justin took as I was shooting my customized Springfield XD40 V-10......

I brought a few goodies, the HK P7M8, Springfield EMP, my Bob Cogan customized Glock 19, Witness Elite Match and a couple others I can't think of off the top of my head right now... We had a great time although it was unusually hot in there today, the air circulation wasn't as good as it normally is. The Coalition Forces was lightweight and very comfy. Sometimes certain watches get a bit uncomfortable if you're shooting for long periods. Either from the extra weight on your outstretched arm, or the large size possibly digging into the back of your hand... neither was the case here. Titanium/rubber in 50mm worked out just perfectly for me. I believe this may be one of the bigger hits for Invicta this year when it releases (which will be VERY soon). __________________

Unfortunately, I'm not really allowed to say just yet. Sorry!! It will be more affordable than the originals however because it does not have that uber-expensive titanium bracelet. __________________

Could be a big hit for Invicta Jim, and I want this one, but am holding off all Invicta's until the 7751 PD. Gotta have that beauty. __________________

It looked good when you teased it on air. Looks great in Sneak peeks.


Gonna look even better on my wrist. Can't decide which color works best for me. Leaning towards the same Titanium/Black you're wearing. Thanks for the heads up Jim! Hope you had fun on the Range. __________________

At least it does have the titanium case... Just hope the rubber strap is more pliable and softer than the RD Quinotaur... With such a massive watch, the Ti certainly helps... By the way... in the corner of your shot, it looks like there's a stairway. Who the heck puts a stairway where folks are shooting???!!! LOL Nice preview and looks like a fun time at the range...

I have the XD40 as well, love shooting that in low light conditions, that "V" muzzleflash from the top of the gun is awesome, back when it first came out I picked one up for 300 bucks.... I brought it to work ror show & tell during our qualification course, serveral co workers went out and got the gun a week later. __________________ "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Anyone Who Threatens It"

Yeah, most XD owners don't even seem to know that Springfield offers a couple models in the V-10 option. Most stores don't stock them for whatever reason, but in the .40 it prevents the muzzle from rising at ALL and is very effective. Some different types of porting on different guns aren't nearly as effective as the V-10 on this XD40. While it not practical to CARRY a ported pistol for defense, it is a lot of fun for the range. __________________

Talking about the new Coalitions Forces....there was mention of strap options for the original model. Is that still the case? By the way I've got the Springfield V-10 in the .45 compact...just an awesome piece. __________________ What time is it? js1946 View Public Profile Find all posts by js1946

I would guess these watches are going to show up soon on the Shop. I noticed this watch already available here: http://uniquemechanics.com/index.php?pr_id=4086&id=65 It's a great looking watch, but, IMO, a lot of money for a quartz watch. I guess the Titanium makes it so expensive. I am not sure it is the same model that Jim is wearing. Jim's looks like it has two-tones in the bracelet.

looks pretty tactical, on the range. I love the look of the oxidized titanium. I think this year Invicta has really been stepping up their metal finishing processes. Between the oxidized bead blasted SS look to the new gunmetal finishes and the titanium, they are some of the best in the business __________________ " Next hour I will whip something out your all gonna want to get your hands on" ; (quote from Jim Skelton, 05/14/09, 0144hrs.)

There is no such thing as “conceal and carry�. With a valid permit, you can carry openly or concealed in Minnesota Concealment is recommended, but not required.

Love my Witness Match!

Incredible 45 for the money. The day I was qualifying the NRA guy had a custom Colt 1911 that he dropped 2500.00 in mods. Felt exactly like my 500.00 Witness. I let him shoot it, first time with it he had a 1.25" group with 5 rounds. He was bumming!


Great firearm! Nice Watch too, does Invicta cover it for 45 re-coil? How about 454 casull? Ron __________________ rbart
