    Gefen is a battalion in BAHAD1, that's the reason for the crap gear.

    Ok, got it.
    Anyway, they look kind of funny in other ways other than the crap gear, are they kravi?

    Pretty sure everyone in Gefen is kravi, but I can't remember exactly how that system worked.
    The barrel of the gun you were asking about is either taped with black electrical tape or has a black plastic cover over it so mud and dirt doesn't get up the barrel.

    You can get them a dime a dozen these days. If you look at the ground at the shooting range you'll see 10 of them with giant holes because people forgot to take them off.

    for proper use (and almost nobody does it right), the cap should be sealed with tape to the muzzle - otherwise water humidity and debris leak and accumulate inside the cap, which leads to quick and brutal rusting.

    I'm sure they're very professional, but no one is perfect and mistakes & accidents can happen to even the best units.

    After training and doing joint operations with YAHALOM (and Oketz which also happen to be in some of the pictures), my opinion is that their training is fantastic and operate at an extremely proficient level.
