SWEP problems

Hi, i’m developing a SWEP to be used as a crowbar reskin within my TTT servers pointshop 2.
I am using the SWEP Construction Kit to create some of the coding as well as using code from other crowbar SWEP’s to create my own.
The code i am using is:

}

}

SWEP.WElements = {
	["staff"] = { type = "Model", model = "models/overwatch/characters/mercy/combatmedic/mercy_cm_staff.mdl", bone = "ValveBiped.Bip01_R_Hand", rel = "", pos = Vector(6.752, 1, -4.676), angle = Angle(-61.949, 0, 0), size = Vector(0.69, 0.69, 0.69), color = Color(255, 255, 255, 255), surpresslightning = false, material = "", skin = 0, bodygroup = {} }

The problem is that when the SWEP is equipped some of the code has no effect.
The setup of the SWEP.VElements does not change how the SWEP appears to the user and so the model just sits in the middle of the screen rather than in the position defined.
Another problem is the SWEP.HoldType = “melee2” does not work meaning the model is in normal melee when looking at the world model.
Finally i do’nt get any animations for swinging the weapon in either first or third person.

This is my first time attempting a SWEP script and I don’t know what i have done wrong in the script so some help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
