I made these when I was younger and didn't have a sight or peep sight.It was just a peice of pvc pipe and just had some twine on for string and I would go out and shoot rabbits with it.

I've made dozens of them when I was younger. A contractor owned the farm before we bought it and when we took over there was 100s of pieces of PVC laying around. My buddies and I made a lot of them. I would say they were most likely only 35-40lb and we used actual rope for strings. Didn't have sights either, but we hit in a penny nail as a rest. We wrapped duct tape around the center for a handle. We did put a nock on the string. WE must of been 13-14 years old at the time. My buddy killed 2 rabbits with his and I killed 1 with mine. Those were the days LOL.
