WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. (March 21, 2014) -- IROC Tactical, a manufacturer of specialty weapons accessories, has made it to the semi-final round in the $30,000 Venture Plan Competition at the Rollins College Graduate School of Business in Winter Park.
Sergie Albino, president and CEO of IROC Tactical, said the firm is one of eight startup companies presenting new products and business strategies to a panel of judges at Rollins College on Tuesday, March 25, with hopes of making the final cut.
Four companies will compete in the finals for the cash award, which recognizes innovative new products and business plans.
Extensive law enforcement testing of IROC Tactical’s IROC MD ranks the product as the premier muzzle device for the AR-15 platform rifle.
While not technically a sound suppressor device, the IROC MD reduces the weapon’s visual and aural signature, improves accuracy and precision, and controls unwanted recoil and barrel climb.
The IROC MD features tool-free adjustability for the AR-15 rifle platform to improve accuracy and reliability and reduce climb rate.
“IROC MD was designed for serious shooters with superior performance in a highly reliable package,” Albino said.
“We formed IROC because we are avid shooters with ideas for products tailored for our market,” Albino said.
The fully-adjustable IROC MD comes in two versions: a $199.95 civilian model for casual shooters and the $299.95 version that meets military specs for the serious shooter.
IROC Tactical is a client company of the UCF Business Incubator in Winter Springs.
