Images added since people did not seem to notice such differences.
I have noticed that decompiling a model and subsequently recompiling it without even modifying will still result in slight differences on the model.
I am not talking about the UV, I have used DoomMusic's StudioMDL to fix the UV positioning. Rather, some kind of distortion occurs after every decompile/compile. For example, the width of the gun seems to get slightly smaller. I tried scaling the mesh by 0.01 on all dimensions and the end result matched the original almost perfectly but there were still minor aberrations. Note that the differences I speak of are so small that they would be difficult to notice unless you compare the original and recompiled versions side-by-side. Is this a problem occurring due to the decompiler or is it occurring due to the compiler? So is there any fix to this problem, or a strategy to be followed while compiling/decompiling stuff? 2nd image - Differences in the triangles as seen via Git Diff - left

First of all, I like to know u have submitted this thread as a "CREATOR" or as a "REDISTRIBUTOR"? lol
I've tried DoomMusic's studiomdl, but it seems it can't support $cliptotextures (though i don't really know what it means) and i failed compiling every time i use that studiomdl
But with other studiomdl i never encounter problem like yours
U are right, "decompiling a model and subsequently recompiling it without even modifying will still result in slight differences on the model."
And that slight differences are caused by DECOMPILING. I have created a box with the size of 64X64X64, and Compile it, when imported the model in the map, all sizes were matched with the source refrences. Another bugs usually caused by decompiling are "messing sequence,uv,mesh up".
That is just because the original compiler used a different version of compiles or used some other "$" commands like "$origin" in his ".qc" that were not in the decompiled one , try verbose setting with decompiler program.
Try using Crowbar toolkit. It supports Goldsrc now.
Though i never experienced that before..
Xx MAHA xX, andiargetlam, [PRince_4] Sharma, CS PRO : There you go, now it should be much more clear. I know the differences are so small that it may seem that I am nitpicking but certain geometry does become uglier and I hate it. Have already used Crowbar before posting here, similar results. I haven't compared which one is more accurate though, will do that next.
Agree x 1
Interesting x 1
this is getting me worried :/...

I'll send the link of this thread to the dev, I guess he'll know what's going on..
