Basically, the procurement office completed their study of the two SCAR types (L & H). The general consensus was that those who had boots on the ground preferred the H for penetration, range & takedown ability, even if they couldn't carry as much ammo overall. They also found that those who were issued L's to begin with eventually were refitted with H's, regardless of weapon format (CQB, Standard or SSR). The procurement office also wanted to further reduce their parts inventory to simplify the supply chain.

So, yeah, procurement cancelled their remaining order of L's, upped their order for H's, and is only maintaining parts for the L's until 2013 (I think) before final phase-out.

Still, they're not going to just disappear overnight - L's will be around for awhile, especially for those "special" units who like to requisition outside of normal channels.
