I recently started to make a Silverballer and found the prices for slide release and safety way too high, so I just bought a second 1911 with the right parts already installed. In the end I paid roughly the same, but now I have a second 1911, which I can maybe use to make a Blackballer replica. Or I'll try to polish the slide, cause the black one looks way closer to the game's version. I'd love to get the right trigger but I'm not willing to pay what is asked for it. And the three hole version looks nice, anyway. Plus the black parts actually fit the rubber grips well.
The WE maybe isn't as good quality as other makes, but it's real good value for money, it's 100% metal and the barrel is already threaded. Threw on a 15 bucks stubby silencer (and a goddamn overpriced 10 bucks adapter) and there you go.
