Done! Made the staples myself out of a coat hanger, flattened them, heated then up and put a twist in them. A little wood glue for some support and they tapped into the horn and wood base plug nicely. The base plug & spout I lightly torched for some age and color. A hand rubbed coat of linseed oil and shes done! Already hanging off my shooting bag. 100% sealed air tight including the staple that goes through the horn.

Nice horn! Looks like bison. That can be challenging in itself. I've done a few and always like the bison horn results best especially with Indian characteristics. Here's a link you should consider studying <http://www.hornguild.org> They're a bunch of very sharing nice guys. BTW, I live in Broomfield, CO. Any hints on ranges and buying real black powder. To date I haven't had much luck for either one. Take care.

Nice one. How is the cap held in place?
thanks fellers, i really am proud of it.

The cap is epoxied into place, plus last night i finished putting the rest of the tiny brass nails into the horn/plug. I only have one installed in the current pics.

After you shoot black powder the residue on your hands will turn that tip darker and the horn will look even better....

Very Nice Horn! I made a few. I used a brass screw-in cup hook for the thong attachment on the larger end of the horns. I sealed the plug end with wood glue and all is well.
