homemade peep sight for my 50cal hawken

first thing first, i don't have metal work experience at all, so I normally shy away from this type of work. but you just have to break down and give it an try.

22ga steel

one of the adjustment lines is not straight nor long enough. the peep hole is off center. but still, an working sight.

The first try is never as good as the second on something like this. :)

A little TLC with the right files and a vise, and that thing would be downright purty!
