Here's a big mod :D .

You have found that when loading Umarex steel bbs into the mags, many will not press in with the finger and fall out meaning that the size of some is not perfect.After a couple of years of fiddling to reload good bbs during my shooting session , I have spent two hours on the following steps.
1. Sit at a table with a fresh bottle of Umarex and 2 empty containers on either side.
2. Empty a small amount of bbs in front of you and press them into mag and hold mag over right container.
3. If some fall out replace with fresh bbs.
4. When 10 shot mag has bbs firm in place- push them out into left side container with a small narrow flat tip item such as allen key.
5. Label left container for use with Brodax only . Label right container for use with others. In my case : Umarex Morph 3X and Daisy Grizzly.

Hornady Black bbs fit well and as accurate. I put a narrow metallic silver mark on the mag so I can keep track of whats left in a mag with black bbs or Umarex. I no longer use Daisys.

After 3 years and 4,000 shots, the Brodax functions perfectly and very accurate up to 17 feet target shooting.

I have attached a short base similar this one on the bottom rail for a little more front end weight. I have a laser on the top rail.
My scores have improved somewhat

I had this problem occassionaly, it was most always the same hole with many BB's so I use a center punch very close to the side of the hole slightly deforming the hole (very little) causing no trouble when shooting, I never had jam's or fall out BB's since.... :drinkers:

I replaced the barrel in mine with one from a 38T and switched to pellets. It's worth doing.
