I woundered the same thing about the allinement marks. I have the flatline 4 my 98 and had it for about 2 years now and i could never see any alignment marks. Any way, I manually allined it and put marks on it myself.

Someone clarify the marks on it please.

On my A-5 flatline I use the screws for the shroud as an alignment mark plus the barrel does not keep turning. You put in the the barrel and turn it a 1/4 clockwise and it stops for me. The screw on the barrel(the one where the gun meets the barrel) should be up. This is for an A-5 flatline.

Here the A-5 Flatline manual...Flatline Manual

on the underside of the actual barrel (or the top) there should be about a 2.5-3 inch line that looks scored into the barrel that is your allignment mark

for the A-5 flatline as long as that screw on the top of the shroud is alligned with the front sight post of the gun then you should be shooting straight.

yeah, on the 98 you can actually bend that POS shroud if the barrel is out of alignment.

Another way to be posotive is to just go out to the woods and shoot it if it curves to the left adjust it to the right Etc.

Put the flatline in slightly loose, shoot it like you would in a game, if it curves, twist the barrel toward the curve, once it shoots good, tighten it up and test again. Then mark the top of the barrel and your marker in the same spot with a magic marker like where the to halfs of the 98c come together, or just scratch it a little...that way when you clean you marker you can put it back on fast.

You'll never find the Correct Setting when doing that.

Heres the Low Down on adjusting the 98 Flatline Barrel

1. On the 98 Flatline Barrel, look at the top of the Muzzle Break, there you will see a Notch at the base where the Barrel and Muzzle Break meets together.

2. Use that Notch to make the neccessary adjustments to the Barrel but, before making the adjustments, loosen the Allen Head Screw on the Adapter.

3. Hold the Marker straight Up & Down, do not Tilt the Marker to either side, tilting the Marker will only create Curve Balls when you begin shooting.

4. Shoot the Marker and watch in which direction the balls are going, if the ball curves to the Left, this means that the barrel is tilted to the right, the same happens if the ball curves to the right, the barrel is tilted to the left.

5. This is where you make the Adjustments to the Barrel.....hold the marker and sight it down, take one hand and hold onto the Muzzle Break and turn the Barrel slightly to the Right Side of the Front Sight of the Shroud, the reason why I said to place the Notch to the right Side of the Front Sight is because, the Plastic 98 Flatline Shroud is bent and there is no way of correcting this problem.

6. Again, shoot the marker and again watch carefully inwhich direction the balls are going, if the balls is shooting straight, youve located the spot where the Barrel should be sitting in the Barrel Adapter.

7. Tighten the Allen Head Screw on the Barrel Adapter to secure the Barrel from moving.

8. Chronographing the marker also helps the Accuracy of the Paintball when using a Flatline Barrel, FPS Setting should be between 260 to 280 depending on the weather.

9. Quality Paintballs (small to medium size paintballs) is a must have when using the Flatline Barrels, regardless if its a 98 or an A5.

Side Note: In #3, I mentioned that Tilting the Marker either to the Left or Right will shoot the balls in opposite directions, in some situations when playing in the Woods, Curve Balls are very useful in taking out an opponent who is hiding behind a wall, tree, large rock, etc.
