Lightsaber rigging issue; displaced blade

This has probably been around before, but I've had this weird little issue cropping up all day and I don't know how to fix it. I exported my saber model from nwmax as instructed in all the tutorials/explanation posts i could find. The hilt is positioned alright, but the blade seems to rotate 90 degrees towards the player and becomes displaced, as seen in the image:

What could cause this? Is there something I may have overlooked? Note that I've tried resetting XForm before AND after linking the new hilt to the dummy, but it produces the same effect.

(thumbnail above links to a live image, you just might not be able to see it in the post)

I'm more of a '3d fabricator' than a '3d modeller', meaning I prefer to construct things from reference, blueprints or schematics rather than to design stuff of my own.
