Silvery pistol without "$selfillum 1"

Hello, I am making a small personal skin for each default weapon. When I take the “$selfillum 1” out of my .vmt file, the entire viewmodel of the pistol becomes silvery. I don’t want it silvery and I don’t want it self-illuminated. How do I get around this?

Nevermind, I got it working. I added “$envmaptint” “[ .1 .1 .1 ]” to it.
