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 FXL 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™.
Compatible with Freak™ XL Barrel Backs / Inserts
Assembled length: 14.5' (Tip+Back)
Silencio as the name suggests is extremely quiet
Liquid Intrusion Resistant
Consistent Precision Accuracy
The barrel is fantastic! The back and the tip anodize match seamlessly with each other. I didn't notice if the tip was any quieter than the factory tip on my CS2 pro, but the laser cut lines definitely prevent the majority of water entering the barrel. I did have it sit out in the pouring rain and there was only a little bit of water at the very tip so it could of just splashed in from the bench it was sitting on. The weight of the barrel feels really nice and I find it helps me stay on target a lot easier than some other barrels. There is plenty of meat on the barrel that gives me comfort that I can take core samples all day long and not worry about it bending. Match this with the Boom Treatment inserts and it's a deadly combo.
I love it I hear I great difference in sound when I use it, I like it matches with my gun with the gold, and I also like that it take freak kit as well
