357 and Spas-12 doesn't have any chrome. Is it my Graphics fault? or is the model glitching?

    If you're referring to a skin you're using, a link might help for the sake of context.
    Not as serious as you'd think.

    If that means they are the default models, I don't recall them having any chrome-like effects to them by default. Half-Life: Source is a literal port of Half-Life to the Source engine, and the only real changes that were made to the game was a bit of lighting and the water effects; everything else was generally untouched (even for the HD models from the console version of the game), so there shouldn't be any chrome effects to them by default unless Valve updated the .VMT files in one of the updates.

    As you see it's a problem in the whole game .. not yours only .. and HL:S is outdated now .. i sugget you to play Black Mesa .. it's a **REMASTERD** Half life in Source engine with better gameplay and graphics Since HL:S is just a straight port of HL from GoldSrc to Source with nothing new .. same maps, same sounds (got some from HL2) and the same gameplay and no Big changes to the game

    Well .. both mod and Steam Released Version are the same thing .. the difference that the steam early access got new updated weapons and multiplayer

    and it's standalone and it got its Own steam workshop too

    while the moddb version requires to install the "Source SDK Base 2007" to work and only single player no multiplayer

    I got the mod version but i sugget you to buy the Early access .. it's wonderful :) and to support the BM developers :D
