There is absolutely nothing i can do about that yet.
A lot of things are HARD CODED into the game, widgets, the control function are fully hard coded. I have absolutely no access to it.
Now the thing with the weapon displays is that it is purely a UI situation, I SHOULD be able to change that, but all my searching previously didn't work out so well. I haven't put the days worth of hours it will likely take to find the exact spot I need to change, so for now its lower on my list of things to do then RANGER balance and PALADIN rework.
That also said once I change them from pistols to their own unittype they stop working for any other skill that is not designed for it, so I would have to go through every classes skills and update them, which will further make the mod less compatible with supplementary mods.
