I would remove the handler for .cs files and add a new one (which would
be the StaticFileHandler) in a web.config file for the directory on
which you want to enable .cs files download. I haven't tested this, but
the web.config should be something like:

<remove verb="*" path="*.cs" />
<add verb="GET" path="*.cs" type="System.Web.StaticFileHandler,
System.Web, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
