    I was browsing another site and saw a picture of a lower from a company by the name of "Umbrella Corporation"

    I know these reference the game and movies Resident Evil and I am not normally the type that goes for gimick gun stuff, but for some reason I want one!

    Does anyone know a source? I have googled and only come up with trademark type information...

    WOW talk about marketing hype. But there is the crowd who believes or who want to believe that zombies do exist.

    The rollmarks are pretty subtle and don't scream Zombie. For $50-$100 it would be worth it to me for the humor...

    I wouldn't spend more than that. As I said I don't normally go for gimick stuff.

    My guess the picture you saw was a photoshop job.

    No, this was the real deal. It was on another forum. I guess I need to register there so I can ask where they got it.

    actually there was a guy on arfcom years and years ago that had a complete set of "umbrella issued" weapons, an ar15 decked out, a remington 870 also decked out, and a beretta m9 with custom umbrella grips. i want to say he also had patches made to go on his vest, body armor, and other "soft" gear, but i might be thinging of something else. at first everybody gave him grief because they thought it was all airsoft gear, right up until he post a video of him shooting it all.

    whatever floats your boat man, i'm not here to judge. i figure an umbrella themed lower is better than a dustcover that reads "surprise ****-***" or "infidel".

    Something about the novelty of the design has peaked my interest. I am absolutely not the Zombie mall ninja type...

    Just think this would be for a fun build... Who knows the novelty may wear off before I can track one down...

    You've got to REALLY love the movies to buy that. Pretty ugly imo.

    i'm really hoping those are just horrible cellphone pics or something cause those look like 10 pounds of hammered *** poured into a 5 pound sack.
