Finding Community Skins in .vpk

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Hey all,
Doing a small art project based on the cs:go economy but having trouble finding all of the skins that are available from the marketplace.
I have managed to find quite a few of them from the materials/models/weapons/customization/paints folder in the pak01_dir.vpk but it seems quite a few are missing. Are there any other locations that I'm missing or do I have to do something in game to have the skins stored locally?

    Certain skins are stored as an independant texture, and then dynamically applied within the game engine. Only Gunsmith, Custom and 1 more style I forgot is stored in the weapon's texture. So your out of luck for the dynamic skins.
