The easiest thing to do would be to look on e-bay. They sell them all day long for a couple of bucks, in 50 and 80 lbs. I find the 80 lb. version more than suficient to hunt rabbits out to about 20 meters with broadhead arrows.

Why not just post it here? I’ve seen that issue on e-bay, but never owned it. what do they make the bow out of ?

I own a pistol crossbow, its a Phantom 35lb one, practically the cheapest you can buy, 36 at max.
Its not very accurate but it does the job 🙂 the only problem with them are those shitty little bolts you get with them,
practically blunt (But the heads can be screwed off 🙂 so I made my own by jamming the head of a soldern iron in one.
If you want a crossbow tho i suggest you look for Barnett, they are the largest manufacturer of crossbows in th UK.
