Meet Joe Walls
My name is Joe Walls and I have been fascinated with rifles since I was a child. I got into long range shooting in the early 2000s because I wanted to kill game at long ranges and increase my odds for success.
Eventually, I started traveling the country shooting precision rifle matches with the goal of learning as much about long range shooting as possible. I had great custom rifles built by smiths from around the country over the years, some were great, and others left much to desire. I met Robert Gradous, and he started to build my rifles. Robert knew how to get rifles to consistently exceed expectations. He and I became friends, and he encouraged me to build my own rifles. Spending all my free time at his shop, I became obsessed with building rifles. It didn’t take long to start building rifles full time for clients throughout the country.
Through the knowledge gained from the Precision Rifle Series, I began to refine my techniques and components over the years. Often overlooked, I feel that there is so much more to a rifle than the accuracy component. The rifle must feed and function 100% of the time. The level of competition within the PRS is some of the very best in the world, and one shot makes all the difference over the course of fire. I have been fortunate enough to earn a black bullet from the PRS on four occasions and have been honored to build rifles for some of the best PRS shooters in the nation over the years as well.
At Walls Rifles, we build each rifle one at a time. Utilizing some of the best equipment available, we complete all the machine work, bedding, stock fitting, finishing, cerakoting, function checking, and accuracy testing in house. I take pride in knowing every rifle that leaves our shop was built to perfection, and to standards that will exceed the expectations of those we serve.
Joe Walls started chambering my barrels over three years ago and I can honestly say he's one of the best gunsmiths in the Country. Joe has done a ton of barrels for me and every one of them has shot lights out and every chamber has been perfect. I have used the same lot of Dasher brass across all these barrels and I have never touched my seating die, try doing that with anyone else's barrels. Joe's chambers are the exact same every single time, good luck getting that quality from another gunsmith. With running a rifle range, I have seen a lot of frustrations among shooters caused by poor gunsmithing. Save yourself the headache and call Joe Walls!
“Wall’s Rifles may be a relatively new brand name but the man and his work are not. For years, Joe Walls’ work has repeatedly been seen in the winner’s circle of precision rifle competitions around the country.. many times with the man himself shooting one.
A Walls Rifle is the end product of a world class rifle shooter using top tier rifle building techniques and premium components. A proven winner building the best rifle available at any price.”
I started shooting PRS matches in 2016 and met Joe early on in my shooting career. The second match I ever attended I was squadded with him. I realized early on that not only was he a great shooter, but a guy that would help and encourage anyone, including someone like me. Since then, not only have I been lucky to call Joe a friend, but now I am too a point where I can choose who I think does the best barrel work, and that is unquestioningly Joe. I could not be more impressed with the fit, finish, and consistency with each barrel I get from him. And most of all, I don’t worry about if maybe my gun could shoot a little bit better, because I know I’m not leaving any points on the table if he is spinning the barrel.
Joe’s rifles are the most consistent, easy to tune rifles I have had the honor of running! Joe takes pride in every rifle he builds, no matter who it’s for the same love and effort goes into the build.
