I didn't make it!
Is there a way I can put a scope on a pistol? If so what files will I need to edit to do the mod?
There are several posts to such topics in this forum. You might wanna do a forum search ;-) Short answer to your question: YES, but only if the weapon's model supports it. Otherwise - in fact in most cases: NO. As far as I know, there's no easy way to scope any gun whose graphical model does not implement the ability to mount a scope. Furthermore, I don't no how to determine whether your pistol's model has scope support. Most (or even all?) built-in / vanilla pistols don't have. However, what you can do on every weapon is to switch to scope view when zooming. This is done by setting the scope support in the weapon's config file to attached (I believe it's value 1), and provide a scope texture in the same file. This way, your weapon model won't visually show a scope mounted on it, but when you zoom in you will get a scoped view (what in my opinion is kind of weird behavior, but if you really like it...). Hope this helps.
