Unlike some other "op-rod" systems, on the HOGAN gun, op-rod
springs have been eliminated due to possible damage and
system failure during sustained firing of the gun.
The HOGAN gun system has been designed and manufactured to
greatly decrease/eliminate heat, carbon build-up, gas leaks,
fouling and wear/tear on operating parts which can have an
adverse effect on an operating system.
Each piece of operating system is hard chrome plated and/or
melonite heat treated making them almost self lubricating
and act as non stick surfaces making them easy to clean and
Operates in semi-automatic, but can be made full-auto for

NP3™ plating: combination of a nickel alloy plating combined
with Polytetrafluoethylene (Teflon). NP3™ metal finish
offers many benefits.
NP3 permits firing for longer periods of time between
cleaning, dirt and powder residue have no wet or oily
surface to cling to.
When cleaning is required, the effort needed is minimal -
usually requiring only a soft cloth.
