Ghost in the Shell CZN M22 by renegadecow Ghost in the Shell CZN M22 by renegadecow
The Zastaba Kulbena CZN-M22 was the issue assault rifle for Section 9 in the hit anime film Ghost in the Shell (1995) directed by Mamoru Oshii. It is a purely fictional weapon designed by its original author Masamune Shirow but obviously lifts elements from existing firearms like the French FAMAS and Belgian FNP90. It is deceptively large, but turned out to be so small that none of the full-sized airsoft AEG gearboxes could fit without significantly altering the original dimensions. So instead I used a Well MP7 AEP gearbox firing plastic 6mm, .20g bbs at approximately 280fps at a rate of 18-20rps with an 8.4V battery. I made this replica back in 2008 and is constructed mostly out of PVC plastic (blue) and plasticated wood for the grips. It weighs 2.5kg empty, exactly the same as what it's alleged to have weighed.

Awesome replica, instantly recognizable.

How does it handle? It seems like it might be unwieldy since the grips are all in the forward end (although I suppose that's not all that different from the P90).

It's horribly unergonomic which is probably why the replica Poseidon made was altered to have curvier edges. Balance is great having only an AEP gearbox at the back and I've weighted the barrel to counter it a bit. I find the grips to be more comfortable than a P90 however as the pistol grip is at a more traditional angle and the distance from your shoulder isn't as short.

Ah yeah, I see the Poseidon copy made a more substantial buttplate for the shoulder. Would probably be more stable that way.

More stable and lots more room. It held a ver3 AUG gearbox inside.
