Richard Bernstein, chief executive officer, received the award at the Golden Bullseye Awards Breakfast on Friday, May 20 2016.
“This award validates our mission to manufacture the absolute best quality rifles and carbines , combining cutting edge innovation, disciplined engineering and state-of-the-art manufacturing and materials technology, said Bernstein.
“We’re honored, and we sincerely thank the professional team of journalists at NRA Publications for all they do for the industry, for testing and understanding our products and for educating the public on the latest advancements in firearms technology. ”
“ Purpose-built to serve as the ideal all-around carbine, the IC-A5 fills that role with panache, ” Friedman said. “ If God-forbid, you could own only one rifle, the IC-A5 would be an excellent choice. ”
