How hard is it to re-origin a model?

I use Marzy's enhanced tommy which is basically the default 1.0 tommy with a strap. I removed the idle animation from it as I do with all weapons that have an incredible amount of sway in them. Below is a pic of how the skin looks now.

and here's a pic that shows the perspective that I would like to have Marzy's tommy to be:

As you all can see, the second pic has the Tommy placed more in the center of the screen as opposed to the 1st pic that kinda looks like he's holding the Tommy away from his body. So my question is, can this model be altered? I have no idea how to do so but am willing to learn. If someone just wants to go ahead and do it it would be enormously appreciated too. :D

Here's the model: v_tommy.mdl (

Thanks in advance for any replies. :D

The link is in the readme file which comes with HLMV that no-one ever reads :rolleyes:

If you're talking about the 2nd pic, then I have no idea because I never altered that one. That's Trigger Tommy model. I simply wanted to change the origins on the default 1.0 tommy. I can always send u the model if you like the origins I chose. I forget what they are offhand, but just PM me your email address and I'll send you the model.

Here's a pic of the Tommy I altered:

I do have the Trigger tommy model, I just don't know the dimensions that was used for it. I guess I misread your post. Just PM me your email and I'll send you Trigger's Tommy model. :D
