Ray Ward Gunsmith

With over 50 years in the gun trade, John has an extensive wealth of knowledge and experience. His knowledge extends to both game and sporting guns making him one of the foremost experts when it comes to gun fitting and design.

John has been involved and is still recognised as one of the Top Game Shots in the country. He has shot most clay disciplines since the age of 16 years.  

On the clay shooting side, John has been involved with multi world Champion, George Digweed and Olympic Gold Medallist champion, Richard Faulds (2000 Sydney Olympics). As any professional coach will tell you "the pleasure of coaching is rewarding when you see individuals develop their skills and achieve their aspirations." 
In 2018, John moved away from Ray Ward Gunmakers and opened Northall Guns in Fletching, East Sussex. 
With the new outlet opening in March 2021, John is very passionate about getting back to his roots and is confident to be able to provide all customers, new and old, a wealth of knowledge and experience for all their shooting needs.
