the detent is a small plastic ball (slightly larger than a bb) that is pushed forward by a spring.

this ball sticks into the breach of the gun just infront of where the paintballs land coming out of the feedneck.

when the gun fires the ball is pushed out of the way while the bolt passes it, but as the bolt retracts and a new paintball falls down, the detent springs back into place securing that paintball

99% of paintball guns use these and not "ball stoppers" like whats in the alpha, so if you have another gun, or know a friend with another gun you can probally look at theirs to get an idea of how it works
