Introduction: Compact SRv2

Picture of Compact SRv2

I will post this gun soon, in January. So be the first to find out when it's posted by SUBSCRIBING to me!

When I posted the full-size SRv2 way back in February 09, a lot of people told me that they couldn't make it because of the lack of parts. Well here is the solution! I too have very few yellow connectors, only about 100 yellow and 20 metallic. This gun uses about 85. It isn't as powerful as the full-size version, but not by much.

The Sears mech on this doesn't lift up or push down on the ammo, like on nearly all slingshot guns (including the SRv1). Because of this, it has an incredibly high range.

This has most of KillerK's mods, albiet pulled off in a different way. The handle can now take the entire gun's weight, the stock connection is stronger, the barrel is shorter and uses fewer pieces (obviously).

Video of the full size SRv2, also available on the instructable

and still you have not posted,
so much for January

Lowney (author)dansdoc2011-03-11

Dude this is like the simplest gun in the world. Look at the instructions for the compact SRv1 and then follow the conversion guide in my full-size SRv2 instructable and you should be good to go lol

mrmuffin (author)Lowney2012-05-27

where in the heck are the compact srv1 instructions!!!!

dansdoc (author)Lowney2011-03-12

thanks lol

starwarsjedi76 (author)2011-08-15

how much yellow and green would be on that gun

Lowney (author)starwarsjedi762011-08-16

About 100 yellow and less than 150 green rods (not really sure about green though). I'm assuming you're asking about the compact SRv2 rather than the full size one, which uses considerably more parts :)

starwarsjedi76 (author)Lowney2011-08-29

yea the compact srv2 and i think i might try and make the orignal and thanks for ansering my question

Lowney (author)starwarsjedi762011-08-29

No problem

Cheezpaper (author)2011-01-29

I feel sad. No compact SRV2. I was hoping for a line of smaller and smaller versions like IAC'S Heavy Cannon line.

Lowney (author)Cheezpaper2011-01-29

Bear in mind this is a lot simpler than IAC's cannon

superbestknex (author)Lowney2011-06-15

hey i have 154 yellow connectors and more ohh build zacs sligshot sniper rifle from knex innovation

Lowney (author)superbestknex2011-06-16

That's just a re-skinned SRv2 though, and if you have 154 connectors that's plenty (if you're asking if you have enough)

superbestknex (author)Lowney2011-06-16

yeah i agree but i got it to shoot about 220 ft with fins could you post instructions

Lowney (author)superbestknex2011-06-16

for Zak's? Why not go to KI?

Fred the evil puppet (author)2011-04-14

What range will this get with fins?

I don't know, it varies with rubber bands but this SRv2 was built as an experiment, and I never tested it outside. But it does shoot pretty well :P

instruct39 (author)2011-01-12

how many #64 rbs did you use?

Lowney (author)instruct392011-01-12

It wasn't a size 64, it was just some huge bungee thingy

instruct39 (author)Lowney2011-01-13

really? it looked like you knotted together some 64s

Lowney (author)instruct392011-01-14

Oh my mistake, I thought you were refferring to the full size SRv2 video, I can't remember exactly how many I used on the compact version, but I used size 63

instruct39 (author)Lowney2011-01-16

okay, thanks anyways!

PindaHoofd (author)2010-01-08

When are you posting?

Lowney (author)PindaHoofd2010-01-08

Probably never. Why?

Pizzapie500 (author)Lowney2010-01-18

But you wrote that you'll post in Jan.

Lowney (author)Pizzapie5002010-01-19

Okay I will

PindaHoofd (author)Lowney2010-01-20

When iz you posting.

Lowney (author)PindaHoofd2010-01-20

Prolly before the end of january. I've got 2 big projects planned, a 50. cal sniper (removable mag) and the Ultimatum Assault Rifle.
I also was planning on an idea that me and The Dunkis were discussing ;-)

PindaHoofd (author)Lowney2010-02-04

Now iz february.

Lowney (author)PindaHoofd2010-02-04

Oh yeah I won't post anymore lol. I decided that the original SRv2 ible was enough, besides my next 2 guns will be better: Ultimatum and Supremecy

PindaHoofd (author)Lowney2010-02-05

Any pics of them?

Lowney (author)PindaHoofd2010-02-05

nope, not started construction, I'm still designing them. Ultimatum is an assault rifle, and Supremecy will most likely be a sniper.

now its next year

Pizzapie500 (author)Lowney2010-02-04

Then you should erase that it's coming soon.

PindaHoofd (author)Lowney2010-01-21

Sounds good!
If i can i will build each of them.

RedStark (author)Lowney2010-12-19

its past january

Pizzapie500 (author)Lowney2010-01-19

Sweet can't wait! Maybe you should invent a mag on a SRV-2 or something that'd be cool

Lowney (author)Pizzapie5002010-01-19

Fraid that's not possible with this gun

Pizzapie500 (author)Lowney2010-01-19

I know... But maybe in the future! Before no one thought that they can make a mag using the ratchet trigger system but KnexFreek did it. He created the FreeSlinger which I would build if it didn't need broken parts.

Lowney (author)Pizzapie5002010-01-20

THAT was possible because it's not a TRUE slingshot. It's a sling rail hybrid. The band PUSHES the round, and doesn't pull it. This normally results in a much much lower range but much much more accuracy and reliabiliy, and of course the ability to create a magazine. And his WASN'T the first like that anyway.

Pizzapie500 (author)Lowney2010-01-20

Well maybe someone will create one using a mag.

Lowney (author)Pizzapie5002010-01-21

Pretty much impossible. Sorry.

PindaHoofd (author)Lowney2010-01-19


PindaHoofd (author)Lowney2010-01-09

Just asking.

Lowney (author)PindaHoofd2010-01-09

Why, do you want me to post?

PindaHoofd (author)Lowney2010-01-10


RedStark (author)2010-12-19

is the mech the same but every thing is shortened?

Lowney (author)RedStark2010-12-19

Yeah, it's basically the SRv2 but miniaturised

Lowney (author)2010-11-06


RedStark (author)Lowney2010-12-19

i thought you said you were going to post in january? its december

hell boy1234 (author)2010-12-16
