Every time the bolt comes back, the light gray and dark gray from the bolt and gun seems to mix weirdly. I'm not exactly sure why.
Based on the video it looks like you have the parts aligned on that left side, so technically both are in the same position so it glitches between the textures. Hopefully that makes sense to you. As far as shapeboxes go I can make a quick video for you if you want to learn how to use them.
Show Model Animation will not show anything for weapons in Toolbox currently. Past that yes you will have to export and then build/compile into a .jar to work on things...
But.. heres a little tip for you..
Hopefully those 2 videos cover it well enough, basically you set up a workspace in Eclipse to your source and then you will not need to build/compile, only export from Toolbox. Launching in debug mode via Eclipse will further allow you to modify values on the fly and then once you find ones to your liking you can plug them into toolbox and re-export to make sure they're correct.
It's also possible to do this (-debug mode) without Eclipse, and thats covered in the first part of my setup vidoes IIRC.
Hopefully this answered any questions you may have had.
