O P Tactical Inc. (OPT) Establishes Brick and Mortar Store in Raleigh, NC

As of May 8th, 2017 OPT has moved into a brick and mortar store and has established walk in sales hours (M-F 9:00 am – 3:00 pm). The new location is 2533-103 Atlantic Avenue, in Raleigh, NC. For people that know the area, that is the corner of Six Forks Road and Atlantic Avenue, between the DMV office and Phy’deaux. Store front signage is pending.

“This move has been long overdue and facilitates the direction that OPT has been headed in for the last few years. We sell very high end products to Armed Professionals, and want to present those items in as professional of an atmosphere as possible to both the end user, and casual browser.” Stated the owner, MSG Jon Sercan (USA, RET), when commenting on the move. Jon retired from the Army in 2016 and now works in the store; prior he had run it in absentia since 2004.

The new location is developing from an ecommerce model into a full blown retail outlet. Other plans are in the mix as well, but nothing is being announced at this time. Jon simply stated “OPT will build inventory, test gear, and improve our fighting position daily.”

OPT has carved a niche for itself within the gear industry, representing high end brands such as Mayflower- Velocity, Crye Precision, Spiritus Systems, Salomon, Arc’Teryx, Hesco, Blue Force Gear, HSGI, PIG, Magpul, Hodge Defense, Aimpoint, Tactical Tailor, and hundreds more. Many brands they represent are also (or were) start-ups within the industry that needed a better platform for sales and marketing, so OPT approached them and helped them build their business over the years. OPT also has a number of original designs and collaborations with industry partners, including a proprietary MBAV armor carrier, an enhanced Berry compliant poncho liner made by Wild Things, and the OPT version of the Mayflower-Velocity LWPC.
