MISSION STATEMENT“To build the finest possible AR type rifles for theshooter seeking much better than average accuracy and consistent trouble free operation”.
To achieve that goal, HOGAN utilize the following in building our guns: The heart of all HOGAN rifles is our short stroke gas piston/trap operating system. All components - gas block, gas piston (reversible), plug and bolt carrier group - are machined on premises then anti-corrosion treated, melonite heat treated, hard chrome or silicone nickel plated.Our proprietary upper and lower receivers as well as our tactical and hunter rails are machined in house from 7075-T6 billet aluminum, bead blasted then hard anodized. NP3™ (Nickel/Teflon coating) and Cerakote finishes are also available. Our close tolerances ensure a firearm with virtually no play between the upper and lower receivers.Barrel blanks are supplied by Rock Creek Barrels, Inc. and completed to final specification at Hogan Guns.HOGAN ‘GOLD STANDARD’ Triggers are standard in all our rifles. The crisp break of this drop-in unit provides the shooter with the confidence to produce target after target with similar sub-MOA groups.For our top of the line furniture and accessories, like butt stocks, grips and rail covers, we have developed long term relationships with leaders in those areas - VLTOR™, MAGPUL™, NORGON™, KNS™, and Falcon Industries’ ERGO GRIP™. Smaller parts like springs, screws and washers are sourced from domestic manufacturers.Some of our rifles may look familiar to the consumer and that would be because we are the original designer and manufacturer of those parts and products marketed by others. Again, HOGAN Manufacturing controls all aspects of the design and manufacturing of the key components in house, these include upper and lower receivers, rails systems, bolts, bolt carriers, gas piston components and the drop in trigger assemblies as examples. In addition, we assemble and test fire the final product that rolls out the door to ensure you are provided the finest quality product available. We have invented, engineered, manufactured and tested this system for several years. What we haven’t invented ourselves we have the rights to produce under license from the inventor and patent holder. By combining best practices in manufacturing with the highest quality components available, we are confident that a shooter’s needs will be well met. And as, we are the sole manufacturer of all major components in our firearms, we stand by our product with great pride.
