Our Story

If the name didn’t already give it away, Devil Dog Concepts was founded by U.S. Marines Camaron Hillman (Military Police & Bomb Dog Handler) and Bob "Charp" Charpinsky (Infantry), who each served in Iraq and went on to become Police Officers.  Both still active Law Enforcement Officers as a Patrol Sergeant and a Training Officer, Camaron and Charp had previously been teammates on a multi-jurisdiction SWAT team for over decade.

Running drills one day and getting tired of the ineffectiveness of the standard charging handle, the question came up regarding how to make the AR platform a side charger without having to rebuild or modify the rifle, yet durable enough for Law Enforcement or Military operation.

Originally, the plan was to create a couple units we could use for ourselves.  Starting a company and venturing into an entrepreneurship was never an intended outcome.  However, the final product spoke for itself and it was clear we needed to figure out how to bring this to market, and Devil Dog Concepts and the Hard Charger AR-15 Side Charging Handle System were born.

It has truly been amazing hearing from our customers over the years and reading hundreds of amazing reviews!  We feel incredibly blessed and will continue to strive to develop innovative products to bring to you.

We can’t thank each of you enough for your support of not only Devil Dog Concepts and our products, but also for your support of our brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement, the Military, all First Responders, their families, and this country!

We want to personally thank all of those who currently serve and have served. Thank you for your service!

Semper Fi and Stay Safe!!  God Bless.
