Homemade Airsoft Answered

Hey guys. Im trying to make a homemade airsoft gun, and have many ideas about it but im stuck on one thing. How does the BB stay in without rolling. If i have a magazing, as long as the pellet doesn't move i can have a gravity/spring fed magazine without a problem. someone please help!

How does the pellet not roll in the barrel when it is chambered and ready to go?

I'm guessing that you have a slot with a spring loaded metal piece that inserts into the barrel just past the pellet, keeping the pellet in place until enough force is applied on it. The metal piece would have to be angled away from the pellet so that as the force increased on the pellet, it would force the metal piece back against its spring.
