Way back in December 2016, I finished a recreation of the pistol seen in screenshots and clips of Half-Life 2 circa 2002 and released it on my blog and on Facepunch. Now, about nine months later, I've made a texture for the world model and packaged it for release here.
The main package includes the 2002 pistol with phong shading on retail hands. The optional downloads include a version with the beta hands, posed to match screenshots from 2002 as closely as I could, and a package including the original cubemapped materials. All packages can be extracted to the custom folder of HL2. The original materials package is named as it is to force it to take precedence when installed with either of the other packages.
It's good, but it's like I never saw the need for this skin, because the Base HL2 skin looks MUCH better. The Beta content was beta for a reason, and not all of it is better than HL2's. What I WOULD like to see done is for someone to take the Scopeless OICW skin seen on Facepunch https://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1521400&p=50892949&viewfull=1#post50892949 and make an SMG reskin of it, because that would look awesome.
