    I made a fix for this here. (as a reply, look for it)

    It fixes the upside-down zoom hands, but also changes the zoom a little. (see the comments for details)
    Happy to help!

    Can't be fixed without editing the game's code itself. The FoV isn't clamped properly, so when the FoV hits an incompatible value it goes into the negative, which causes that flip.

    Only real way to avoid it is to play with the lowest possible FoV Source/HL2 supports, which to my knowledge is usually 54. I know that the aspect ratio of your display also has an affect on that number, but you'd have to play around with the fov and fov_desired commands to make it work.

    You can do two things
    1. Lower the origin of the weapon
    2. Play at a reduced fov.

    I don't know if there's a actual fix for this.
    This happens literally on every weapon with the zoom command.
