But just for the record in case nobody said it already, and just to re-iterate if they did: there's no such thing as a flat trajectory, all projectile motion (even bullets) is parabolic (curved). It's just a question of how wide is that arc? With anything fired by compressed gases: not very.
Anyway, I run an A5 with all pneumatics stock, no add on regulators expansion chambers or any of it. Yet I am constantly suprised at how consistently it fires. To zero my sight I had my little cousin brace the vert air bottle against a flat surface and hold it in place while I worked the triger and put a grouping on the side of a conex box at about 75ft. Then I just adjusted the red dot to the middle of that grouping. After switching around the sight to different guns, abusing it and the A5 constantly, and about three or four years (maybe five) I have never had to re-calibrate and it still works like a charm. on my A5 that is. Since you're runing first strike rounds I definently recomend zeroing at a longer range, I did 75ft (estimate) with paintballs. Adjust your velocity so as to be field legal put a group on a target and calibrate. Paitballs being accurate-ish at best this isn't as crucial a thing as it seems often to be made out as.
