Half-Life 0.52 models aren't compatable with "modern" GoldSrc, as far as I know. I've seen mods convert alpha models to retail, so it must be possible

Try decompiling and recompiling.

studiomdl.exe threw me this error when trying to recompile, after decompiling with no errors in crowbar:

Compiling with Crowbar 0.72: "C:\Users\brann\Downloads\New folder\v_mp5.qc" ...

Compiling "v_mp5.qc" ...
Output from compiler "E:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Half-Life SDK\Model Tools\studiomdl.exe":
entering v_mp5.qc

********** ERROR **********

can't upload them right now, but if you've got the alpha 0.52, just decompile v_mp5.mdl and attempt to recompile them with the steam half-life sdk's studiomdl.exe

Decompiled and compiled and it worked! (somehow).
Here is the model for you to check it out. (sorses not included)

Thanks! Must be something going wrong on my end. I'll have to fix that.
