I do not know if I fully understand your issue, but let me 
suggest a couple of things.

1) If you just want to count the passage of electrons through
the boundary of xenon and copper, you may do it in your
UserSteppiingAction. Check the volumes of PreStep and
PostStep to identify the volume crossing.

2) You may also use the flux scorers provided to count the
particle flux. You may want to use the particle filter to score
just electrons.

Please visit to the recent Geant4 tutorials, for example
to see the scoring lecture notes.

Hope this helps.
