Found another issue, you made no shell ejector at the right side of the weapon, you have it on the left side, which is wrong, combined with a bolt the player handles, which is more wrong.
Textures are also wrong and do not load properly.

I noted the bolt action as unrealistic in one of my first responses. I never claimed an ultra-realistic shotgun. I never claimed a fully animated third person weapon. The exit for spent casing, though wrong,is barely noticeable and easily fixable.

@Dioun, my new suggestion is that you do not use this. Understandably because of it's many flaws. :) Again, I'm not offended but you must admit, that you have a strange obsession with breaking this apart. I never claimed perfection but as a very first model I've ever made, it's not bad. I noticed it in that resource for WorldLab/Gamelab and sorry, it just doesn't look that out of place.

@Everyone else, I hope that this is a good base for making your own new weapons.

Edit: I'll fix the spent casing ejection and look into the texture mapping.
Edit2: I take that back, I'm leaving the shell ejection alone. This is a fantasy gun really that allows a bolt action to place a fresh round into the breach. Plus you never see the other side of the gun in first person so...I need to move on to other things.

Yeah I gave it a try in my GameLab project and it's working. Wasn't that hard to make it an extra weapon but I noticed the bad material naming/texture mapping. I was planning to give a try to see if it's fixable with 3dsmax by loading the .dae. I never really tried to open animated .dae for edit.

Let me know if you plan to fix it, else I will proceed with updating the mapping.

I’ll try to fix it once I understand how to. :)

I dont know what tool you use but should be as simple as changing the texture map name. Look for something like: _1_-_Default and Material__25 and set a better name.

Edit: I changed the maps to wood and metal. Hope that is good?

Your shotgun model is in the latest version of Uebergame, so in case anyone wants to see it in action, he can try it out.
I modified the model a bit, reduced some polygons and removed the texture maps since the UV maps were broken somehow. I used only the model and made my own scripts and sounds, but still a decent placeholder.

That's cool Duion, you're doing a good job with Ubergame. That's a ton of work. The new menus and GUI look great.
