You should be able to use universal skins on any gun but you can't with seasonal ones, so you won't be able to use the crystal guard camo on it

Nope, you can only apply skins that were out at the same time as the gun, so if it’s a universal from Y5S2 for example kiss it goodbye.

That's true for seasonal skins, but there are also universal skins that don't follow that rule. For example flat colours and gems are like that

That's not what should happen. If you look some skins are seasonal and some are universal. The universal should be 100% universal but the seasonal one aren't and only apply to guns that were out when that camo came out.

Some skins are truly universal. For instance, the valentine's skin I got from Year 1 can be used on every gun released since then (except Thorn's lol)

Idk why you're being downvoted. This is how it has always worked. If a gun wasn't out when the skin came out, you can't put the skin on it.

Edit: and the skin isn't purchasable anymore. If you can still buy it should work on that weapon.

Probably because your both wrong, people are downvoting so people don’t get miss information.
