It would help to know the mechanism you plan on implementing. People have had success cutting the back of the barrel with a hacksaw and slipping an o-ring over the groove as a detent to keep the ammo from rolling out the front of the barrel, but it doesn't stop the BB's going the other way.

What i usually do is to drill a small deepening (about 2mm deep with a 5mm drill bit), the BBs get pushed in the Barrel and in the indentation so they cant roll out.
