INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW PRO DNA SILENCIO™ BARREL KIT
THE MOST VERSATILE PROFESSIONAL GRADE COMPETITION BARREL KIT AVAILABLE TODAY
The PRO DNA SILENCIO BARREL KIT is a professional grade electro-polished 6-piece set.Tucked efficiently into an ultra-compact modular case are four 8" precision barrel backs, 1 Silencio™ tip and a barrel back that accepts XL inserts. This allows the user to decide whether they want to use a 2-piece barrel or use their XL inserts with the kit.Having this versatility and control range over bore-matching is unprecedented in a single barrel kit.

FREAK XL BOREMASTER KIT IN BLACK NITRIDE STAINLESS STEEL.
The official freak inserts need no introduction. They have been at the pinnacle of the barrel world for years, allowing users to custom tailor their barrels to their paintball sizes. In a collaboration between Infamous and GOG we have developed a full stainless steel XL insert kit with black nitride treatment!
What is special about the Infamous® Freak Insert set?
Not just black for a cosmetic reason, the unique black tone of the Infamous® Freak® inserts are designed for increased durability and performance.
Infamous® edition Freak® inserts are superior to standard Stainless Steel inserts due to the case-hardening process used to increase the inserts wear resistance, corrosion resistance and lubricity. Unlike anodizing or plating, the nitride process does not effect tolerances or weight of the insert and will never flake or peal.
The process used on the Infamous® inserts is a nitrocarburizing case hardening, known as quench polish quench nitriding, or by the brand names of QPQ®, Tufftride®, Tenifer® or Melonite®.
The surface properties of this treatment increases surface hardness by as much 300% over the base stainless material. Additionally the stainless base material takes on its characteristic black color.
Why does the laser marking color vary in my Infamous® Boremaster® set?
Due to the nature of QPQ nitriding, there will be slight variance in the lasers ability to penetrate & bleach the color of the iron nitride surface. Lasering does not remove or reduce the surface treatment, it simply alters the color of the oxide itself.
The variance in color is not a result of layer thickness, or laser power/function.
The variance in color occurs due to the alignment of the iron particles in the material surface. Particles in the surface oriented away from the laser source will be less bleached of color than other particles that are parallel to the laser source.
The resulting variance will yield a surface color varying from a silver to a gold hue, and is to be expected when lasering a material with this hardness & chemical composition.
What is black nitride?
Blacknitride+™, or Ferritic Nitrocarburizing, is the thermochemical that simultaneously diffuses nitrogen and carbon into the surface of ferrous metals. During the process, a two-part surface layer is formed, an outer iron nitride layer with a nitrogen diffusion layer below it. Nitrogen and carbon are absorbed by and diffused into the surface of the metal. Reproducible and uniform layers with a predetermined thickness will be formed on all areas of the metal. This process results in markedly improved surface properties on ferrous metal parts while maintaining dimensional and shape stability.
The Infamous Silencio Barrel backs are electro polished, providing the smoothest surface in a barrel. A lower friction barrel allows for breaks to be shot through and cleaned faster. There are no coatings, no chemicals. This is just the smoothest finish you can get with no material left behind by honing.
SILENCIO™ TIP At the front is a precision engineered tip for exceptional accuracy, micro-honed for the most consistent shot possible, ported for a reduced sound signature and add liquid intrusion resistance.
PRO DNA BACKS The PRO DNA backs feature an electro-polished 8 inch control bore precision made in 4 bore sizes.The exterior of the back incorporates a tactile machined grip that allows the user to easily unscrew the back no matter how slippery, muddy or slimy your hands get.
PRO DNA XL INSERT BACK Lets face it, everyone has their own preference in barrels.Whether you already have an XL insert kit or just prefer it, the PRO DNA kit will allow you to use those inserts too.
MODULAR PROTECTIVE CASE The last thing you need is another giant case taking up more space in you gearbag.This case is the minimal size to house the kit while still protecting and organizing it.It can also be mounted to our modular gear bags using the included molle system.
The Silencio™ Tip 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 PRO DNA SILENCIO Barrel Kit 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™.
Great barrel and kit a+++
