Introduction: Knex Rifle: Epidemic 5.56
Epidemic is a powerful, removable magazine rifle with a pin guide and slick looks. The best part: A charging handle! It happened when KnexGuy15 (Go and subscribe him) suggested I should build a bolt action rifle. I was about to do a range test when I received the message, so I hastily replied and did the test. Well, the bolt action rifle rifle stuck in my mind, so about 10 minutes later, I came up with the charging handle idea. 10 more minutes and I had one built and installed. The action is incredibly smooth, better then the Zkar. It is more accurate then the Zkar too. The range is about 60 feet with two #64 bands. I had already started to write the into for this ible, and so when I found how good the range was, I was super exited to update this. It turned out very painful. The snow at my house has mostly melted, and as I ran, I slipped and fell full force on my hip. The good news: only four pieces snapped out of place. The bad: there is at least a 70% chance of ending up with a bruise the size of my fist. Anyway, it is technically a version two of this gun. The new version is better in several ways, and a list of differences is as follows.
Slightly longer barrel.
14 round 5.56 banana magazine.
Only 8 blue rods sticking out.
Better pin guide to body set up.
Handle has black wheels on it.
Bottom rail for attachments. (Like these)
Different stock internals.
