 It is about 12 3/4" around the outside curve and 11 tip-to-tip. The Butt is Walnut, hollowed out about 3/4s its length by about 1 1/2". It is held by the same 7 wooden pegs that hold the base band in place, The tip is two pieces of Antler pinned together with 3 wooden pegs and to the horn with 3 more. The bands are held in place by metal pins. The body was sanded and finished with dye and shoe polish.

Very attractive!  Nice work as always.  I like the way the band and tip contrast with horn color.

 Well Ken, like the Heading Says, I posted the Wrong pix. they came from this thread:

  https://americanlongrifles.org/forum/index.php?topic=71512.msg714402#msg714402

 In any case I appreciate the Critique on that one. See what you think of this one.

They are both fine looking horns.  I like the one with more bands the best.  Nice turning.   :-)

I like this one even better but they are both really nice horns.  Your work continues to impress.

Nice looking and good proportion Tim!  And I concur with the 'gettin old', as far as the body goes, lol.
