There's a difference in converting weapons from other games, and converting custom weapons made for other games. 3D models made by guys like you and me can be converting without any legal issues if you just ask permission from that author.
But yeah technically it's not legal to convert player models/weapons from other games, if a game producer would complain about this the administrator would have no choice but to remove them (correct me if I'm wrong though). This happenend before with some models that were converted from Arma 2
I'm not telling you what to do or don't do though, I'm just saying be careful and consider the possibility of your mod not being approved or being removed due to copyright issues.
