Appleseed GONG: I need a ruling... :)

I'm thinking about putting manufacturer stamping on my custom Appleseed GONG Shotgun project.

I looked online and people describe the weapon in a few ways:

GONG
Norinco GONG
Poseidon/Norinco GONG
SEBURO GONG.

So... which is correct?

Nobody seems to actually quote Shirow when describing the thing, they make statements that may or may not be true.

I don't have acccess to my Apppleseed Databook to double check, so does anyone know what's correct?

Thanks in advance,

Russ

Appleseed Data Book has this.

Poseidon Norinco Inc.

multipurpose handgun ("Gong")

Intron Depot and Intron Depot 3 Ballistics don't have anything.

Poseidon/DNG made the kit version (which I know you're already aware of)

'Seburo' is the fictional arms manufacturer that Shirow uses as an umbrella term for weapons he designs. Used in Appleseed, GitS, and other works. I would probably use that.

I believe the correct nomenclature is "gongo-badongo." :angel
"AIRLOCK"

*shoves Sith Sherrif Brody*

"PURGE"

;)

Thanks Everyone. I think I'll likely go with the Poseidon-Norinco designation on mine when I get to that point.

"Poseidon" IS Japan in the Shirow-verse of Appleseed, and is a techno-industrial
corporation that manufactures weapons and other tech, so it
makes sense that they'd be involved in the weapon manufacturing.

Seburo and Poseidon are different entities. :)
