How to change arm skins for custom player models?

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

I only want to use this for offline. First off, what I did was I changed gamemodes.txt from:
"ct_arms"			"models/weapons/ct_arms_idf.mdl"
"ctm_idf" ""
"ctm_idf_variantB" ""
"ctm_idf_variantC" ""
"ctm_idf_variantD" ""
"ctm_idf_variantE" ""
"ct_arms"			"models/weapons/ct_arms_idf.mdl"
"custom_player/maoling/re0/emilia_v2/emilia" ""
"custom_player/kuristaja/spiderman/spiderman" ""
"ctm_idf_variantC" ""
"ctm_idf_variantD" ""
"ctm_idf_variantE" ""
And it worked, it changed the player models in-game offline. 

But something else happened, the arms for each of the custom player models didn't change into their custom arm skins. But, it wasn't the idf arm skin either. It changed to some other CT skin. I'm not sure what it is. It stopped using the default ct_arms_idf.mdl skin that was in the gamemodes.txt file. The game knew it wasn't an idf model anymore, so it changed it.

This led me to believe that the player models are somehow connected to the arm models. I'm not too sure though. I checked the mdl files and the location for the arm models aren't in them. 

So, is this possible? If so, how do I change it so it uses the custom arm skin that I want?

    TL;DR how do I use the custom arm skin with my custom player model only, without affecting the other CT's arm skins, offline.

    Hello, its not possible to change in offline arms for specific model... Its possible only change arms for whole team CT or T.

    If you still need help I can create video how to change arms in offline.
