    I'm actually quite stumped. I checked the material file and compared it to the original F-a-N material file and it seems to have the correct parameters for the sheen to function. It may be due to the nature of how the model was elongated to begin with. If I were to hazard a guess I'd say the end of the barrel is another bodygroup instead of part of the original smd. This the only reason I can think of why the sheen would appear on two separate portions of the model simultaneously with one sheen never appearing on the other sheens area of effect.

    I'm going to decompile the model and find out for myself.

    EDIT*

    $bodygroup "c_double_barrel"
    {
    studio "c_double_barrel_reference.smd"
    }

    This was the only bodygroup in the qc. so now I'm just confused. Maybe the end of the barrel was separated from the rest of the weapon by having it pull from a different sheet but both of the areas have the same sheet name as the input so it would classify both as different materials even though both look for the same sheet name. This is my last guess as to what this could be. Since I don't have modeling software I have no way of verifying this theory. I'll have to leave this to somebody else. I gave it my best shot.

    EDIT**

    I had my buddy open it in blender and we both took a look at it and inspected any ways this could be caused and neither of us could find anything. The entire barrel is one mesh and there is only one material in the list for the whole model. It looks like there's really no way to fix this. I'm going to make one last effort at a fix by inspecting the material file for the sniper rifle and see if longer models have different parameters.

    EDIT***

    Looks like every weapon has the same sheen parameters. I'm completely lost as to how to fix this.
