Red Creek Tactical and Operators Suppression Systems (OSS) have joined forces to develop a new integrated 458 SOCOM rifle system. The Red Creek built the rifle using the latest and best parts while OSS provided a custom suppressor designed to go over the barrel, thereby keeping the overall package very compact. The OSS system provides a modular suppression system that allows the operator to choose the level of suppression based on the mission. Called the Tomahawk CQTC, this system provides for some serious close-quarter punch.
The CQTC utilizes the best components available and maintains solid balance and weight. Integrating the suppressor from the ground up allowed for it to be fitted inside the handguard, making for an incredibly clean look. The real question—does it work, and how does it shoot?
Take a look at this short video to get an idea. It certainly packs a punch, as is evident from the 10-round rapid-fire string. Keep an eye out for complete tests and evaluations in upcoming issues of Special Weapons for Military & Police and The Complete AR Rifleman.
