As you people know. You can't inspect a non-skin weapon unless you're on a server with such plug-in. But these simple steps will let you see your skin as default while keeping the possibility to inspect it. 
Step one: Buy literally any skin for a weapon you want to inspect.
Step two: Go to your Steam library.
Step three: Right click on Team Fortress 2 
Step four: Select "Properties"
Step five: In "set launch options" type in "-dxlevel 80" (Without quotes)
Step six: Apply changes and run your game
Step seven: Equip the skin
Step eight: Enjoy your "default skin"


Everyone that creates skins for default weapons knows you cannot inspect them, which is a pain in the ass. 
DirectX 8 does not support skins created by valve, which means it'll be shown as default.
