Title: Sidearm for my kit

Does anyone havr any experience with either this seller or the designer?  It's the only Westar 35 that I like, all the other ones I've seen just don't look "real," in that they look like a cartoon, rather than what a pistol would look like.

I donít have any personal experience with the seller but their graphics are stolen from Sergey Kolesnik (3dprintoys). That would be enough to make me look elsewhere.

If you read the description on the page, it does say that the design was used with permission from Sergey.  That's why I asked about it, Sergey only sells it as STL files and my printer is no where near good enough for the fidelity of the model.

Edit: I have contacted Sergey at 3dprintoys on Etsy and he has told me personally that the seller in question is his partner in the US, so there would be no case of using a stolen design.  What do we think about the design?

Thanks for correcting my mistrust. I just got a message from Sergey, too (though it seems graphics theft is a real issue for him).

As to thoughts of the design, I love that 35, very detailed. I ordered a "custom" version from Sergey, should see it this week.
