Shayetet 13

Translated as Flotilla 13 and better known as S13, they are part of the Israeli Navy’s special forces units. Each member is trained to be proficient in standard issue Israeli firearms but enemy weapons as well. Though they are considered some of the best naval operators in the Middle East, they have been involved in high profile and controversial operations. (GRH)

Shayetet 13

Also known as S13, they are part of the special forces for the IsraeliĀ  Navy. Specializing in naval warfare, S13 also conducts hostage rescues, recon and transport. Like most special forces, the training is particularly harsh and brutal in order to test an individual’s abilities both physically and mentally. (GRH)

I guess they’re here…

The civilian model of the TAVOR is finally on U.S shores amidst all the panic buying and anti-gun laws floating around. Originally they were supposed to have been brought in a few years ago but the importation deal fell through. Basically a bullpup chambered in 5.56x45mm/.223 and uses standard AR-15 magazines. The funny thing is the MSRP was supposed to be under $2,000 but that was reported on before the Sandy Hook tragedy.

If I wasn’t building an RPK-74M I’d probably buy one.

IMI Timber Wolf

Not something you see for sale too often, even among this gun buying panic and craze. The Timber Wolf is a pump-action rifle chambered in .357 Magnum (and .38 Special) or .44 Magnum.

The .44 Magnum version is harder to find than the .357. Not sure how many were made before production ended. Because of it’s obscure history and unassuming appearance, most people may not know the value or rarity of one of these. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if you found one at a pawn shop or gun show for much cheaper than what it normally sells for, which is usually in the $800 to $900 range.

Training…

Members of the Israeli Nahal Brigade doing training exercises. Note that no magazines are present in the rifles. The Nahal Brigade was the unit that the 6 soldiers were from that produced the viral video of them dancing to Ke$ha’s Tik Tok.

If you’re wondering what those weird floppy helmet covers are, those are called mitznefet. It acts as a means of disrupting the silhouette of a soldier’s helmet, making it more difficult for a sniper to pick off a head shot. Since it is a helmet cover, it can be removed and applied easily, though apparently some soldiers find the mitznefet distracting and obtrusive.
