United States Army Special Operations Command to dump FN SCAR Mk16

    The United States Army Special Operations Command will start removing the FN SCAR MK16 (5.56mm) form their inventory at the end of this year, according to a document obtained by Military.com. By 2013 they plan to have completely divested themselves of the carbine. The FN SCAR will continue to be used and later this year the Army plans on procuring a 5.56mm conversion kit for the MK17.
