Anime Airsoft - Poseidon's Offerings
Written by ORCA   

When Poseidon, Japan releases something, it's always sad to see,, the first "knee jerK" comment is, "It's from Ghost in the Shell". With just a little research of the Poseidon site itself, they tell you what they modeled their kits after, and in most cases it's NOT GITS.

The next thought is: "Does accuracy really matter?" "It's just a fictional gun to begin with." To some it really doesn't matter, but the simple answer is, Poseidon has already posted what series things belong to or not.

Another way to look at it is, some people believe slapping a longer barrel/front end and thumbhole stock on an AK makes it a SVD Dragonuv. Some people know the difference between an AK and Dragonuv, and would rather have a replica of a true Dragonuv. Being "correct" is a matter of perspective since everything is a replica.

A quick back grounder on Poseidon, Japan. Poseidon, Japan is a small model shop. Their name comes from Poseidon Heavy Industries, which is a fictional multinational corporation (Japan) from the Masamune Shirow anime universe.

Below is a chart of all of Poseidon's Weapon releases and who/what they are related to. This info comes directly from Poseidon.
