I have the feeling the weapon template its causing you problems. Try mine, it only has one bone but i fixed all the problems the templates had, just add your weapon, move the tags and scale the bone to 2.54 before exporting it
Hi it's me again sorry for the late response. So I just tried out your weapon template and you sent me and I tried to follow your suggestion to the best of my understanding but I am still having similar result to how I did it before except this time the clip is inside the gun. I did make sure to record, and later convert the video clips in GIF files, my steps again in hopes that those GIFs would better illustrate the steps I took this time around. Also thank you for getting to me so quickly, I appreciate it.
