So this weekend I went to do a full clean of my marker... The custom products detent I had been using, well the internals of it had just disappeared. Anybody know how or why the delrin ball popped out, or if custom products sells replacements/do anything about it? Let me know

I'm guessing this was on an autococker?
The detent was probably in too far, the CP detents stick out a lot and if they're in too far the bolt clobbers the **** out of them. Eventually it breaks loose and probably went down the barrel.
As far as replacements go, maybe give cp a call.

As a guy who makes several models of detent myself, I'll point out that no detent is indestructible. Yes, some designs and some models last longer than others, but if you shoot the gun enough, any detent will eventually need replacing.
On a 'Cocker, the two most common failure modes are either the detent getting gunked up with paint (or dirt, etc.) or the 'crimp' at the end wears or fails from the repeated snapping of the ball, and eventually the ball pops out.
If your ball and spring popped out (as in, you didn't lose them while you were cleaning the gun) then the 'crimp' has worn to the point that even if you got a new ball and spring, they wouldn't stay in place very long.
In other words, it's likely time to get a new detent.
