In addition to several special-edition VersaMax Tactical shotguns in Reaper Z camo patterns, the company also provided an assortment of firearms for the prize table.
Outbreak: Omega, hosted by DPMS Firearms of St. Cloud, MN, is the original, largest, and most well-attended 3-gun “zombie shoot” in the nation. More than 1,400 people descended on Ahlman’s in Morristown, MN for the event, which set a new attendance record. When pictures of the special-run VersaMax Tactical hit Facebook, Remington set a new Facebook record when nearly 4,500 people responded.
“Our friends at DPMS Firearms asked us to be a part of Outbreak: Omega and we knew we needed to deliver something different,” said John Trull, Vice President of Firearms. “The VersaMax® Tactical is finding fans well beyond our traditional consumer. It is hands-down the best value in autoloading shotguns available for 3-gun enthusiasts today, whether you’re competing in a sanctioned event or knocking down zombie targets with your buddies.”
The VersaMax Tactical is an evolution of the popular VersaMax® shotgun first released in 2010. With features that include a 22” barrel, full-length extended magazine tube, and extended tactical choke tube, the VersaMax Tactical is built around the same VersaPort gas system that allows the shotgun to reliably cycle 12-gauge loads (2 ¾”, 3” or 3 ½”) while reducing felt recoil to that of a 20 gauge. The unique engineering and proven performance make it a natural fit for 3-gun competitions.
In addition to the shotguns used on the range, Remington provided a prize package for Outbreak: Omega attendees that included a Model 1911 R1 pistol, a Model 870 Express Tactical, a VersaMax Tactical, a Model 700 and a Model 597™ donated as prizes awarded at the conclusion of the 2-day event.
