Based and Magnum-pilled
I find it hilarious that Banagher was unable to be separated from his beloved beam magnum, so the garencieres team literally had to modify an entire suit around a stubborn teenager's sentimentality. As for the model itself, it's... beautiful. I had heard negative things about it, but now that it's in my hands, it's up there with some of the best HGUCs. I may be a bit biased, because I loved the vanilla Silver Bullet (need to buy another at some point...), but it felt pretty solid. A fair amount of parts are reused from the original, which means that you can circumvent one of the only major flaws from the new ones: the feet are a bit rickety, but can be replaced with the original Doven-Wolf type feet for better stability and better looks (in my opinion). The rest of the flaws in the design are mostly inherited from the original Silver bullet, so if you have that one you know what to expect. One last little detail is that all of the sensors on the head are actually a single part of molded red, even the eye-band. If you leave off the included sticker for the regular gundam black-framed eyes, it looks really sick with just a single-color visor, almost like something out of Daft Punk. Anyways, rant over.

I like the Silver Bullet, I do. It looks cool and displays nice, despite some glaring flaws. The recreation of the arm replacement system is spot-on, and probably the kit's coolest feature. The mix of purple, green, and grey colors looks hideous in my opinion, but that's nothing some beginner level painting can't fix. The kit does lack poseability, something accentuated by how top-heavy it is, so getting it to stand up right without an action base is nearly impossible. And even then, the weight is enough to pull the waist joint back. If you like the Silver Bullet's design, I'd say its worth buying, as its flaws aren't horrible and the kit fits together very nice. If you aren't all about it though, you're not losing out on anything special.

Middle of the road
The first thing to know about the Silver Bullet Suppressor is that it is big. The second is that it's floppy.
Being a bit of a franken-kit, with parts from the HG Doven Wolf, HG Silver Bullet, HG Unicorn, along with some new parts, it isn't at absolute modern standards, but there's nothing ultimately that wrong with this kit. It works fine, it stands up, though it won't do many dynamic poses on the ground. Balance isn't great, the hips are particularly weak as are the legs. Color accuracy is fine, with correcting stickers needed for the purple trim as well as some but not all of the white on the shin guards. The head sculpt is particularly nice, I would say.
If you're a fan of the design, I would recommend it. If not, you're not missing out on a lot.
