There has been a lot of talk about "PRO DNA" at Infamous Paintball™. This barrel is a perfect example of our PRO DNA in action.
Pro Team Infamous asked for an aluminum barrel tip that met the requirements of the skeleton squad. Their wishlist was clear; The barrel must be the best in class in the following categories: accuracy, quietest sound signature, must work in all weather conditions, and durable enough to withstand everything they put their equipment through. This meant reimagining porting.
We are proud to introduce the Infamous XL Tip with Silencio Linear Porting. Patent Pending Silencio Linear Porting was developed to deliver on those demands of the pro players. Quiet, Consistent, Laser Accuracy and Liquid Intrusion Resistant.
Silencio uses elongated slots instead of round holes. Barrels now can have up to 114 individual porting holes. Each one has its own release of air, its own sound. Silencio Linear Porting has 20 ports. Air is given a larger path per port to escape, leading to a smoother exciting airflow and less sound from turbulent air.
Every time the paintball passes a port there is an abrupt change in the pressure release ahead of it. Each abrupt change in pressure causes the ball to move slightly. Silencio™ drastically reduces the porting holes and pressure changes. And since the slots are elongated, the pressure drop is closer to a linear function. The ball exits the barrel with less abrupt pressure changes and a smoother airflow, giving a better ball on ball precision.
Liquid Intrusion Resistance
Silencio Linear Porting is less than 1/3 the width of standard porting holes. That width was selected for a reason. Any time there is water or paint on the barrel, it gets trapped in the porting and the surface tension of the liquid holds it there and prevents it from dripping into the barrel. The next shot creates a pressure wave that blows out any trapped liquids. Fittingly, this barrel’s first tournament was Dallas 2019.
The Silencio™ XL tip was not cobbled together from existing tech. It was designed. It was engineered. Airflow analysis was performed on models in a variety of situations. Thousands of simulated shots were taken before the machine shop was even called. Only after that was completed did field testing begin. Hours of real world testing further refined the Silencio XL Tip, including the down pours at NXL Dallas 2019. We found that the barrel met or exceeded every requirement AND we patented the hell out of it.
Silencio™ is a product of months of engineering designed to deliver peak performance. That is PRO DNA™.
The barrel is astonishing quite and less feeling recoil while shooting and it is perfect barrel for Florida in high hot weather and also great on rainy day while playing and no lose ammo while shooting..
This is the 2nd silencio tip I've purchased! I run them on both my markers!
Best Brand in the Market hands down!!!!
Best barrel tip on the market!
The Silencio Barrel tip definitely stands up to it's name. Noticibly queit shot. Tested this on multiple markers. The finish is flawless inside and out. I will be purchasing another one for my backup setup!
Love it, will be buying another
Super clean. Must match bore to paint to achieve a quieter sound signature
Cosmetically appealing and extremely accurate and great sounds signature
Love the barrel! Looks and shoots great and has great sound signature!
Only used a few times. Satisfied with the the sound. Love the look. Mine specifically was added to a luxe x. With this tip the insert won't fully seat, leaving about a cm of the insert exposed. But it hasn't affected performance. Overall its worth the upgrade.
Noticeably more quiet.
Fresh off the Mudfest that was NXL Europe Amsterdam, I knew battling the wet conditions would be my next challenge going into next season. I heard about the design philosophy of the Silencio Barrel and was intrigued with the slotted porting. I can confirm after practicing over the weekend in rainy conditions once again, that the barrel performs as advertised. Not only did it keep my bore dry due to water convection, the sound signature on my Luxe-X was noticeably deeper when compared to my teammates Luxe. The sleek design also complimented the shape of the marker and fit like factory on the Luxe XL base. Paint handling was incredible and it handled very old practice paint like a dream. The original plan was to only break the Silencio out during rainy weather, but I can say confidently that It will have a permanent place on my competition setup for seas ok and to come.
