HK416s are what we (ASOC) wanted .. but thanks to SOCOMs push of the SCAR, also known as the POS ... we're only going ot have a certain number of 416s.

As of right now, however, there is nothing that improves enough to justify replacing the M4. Just not cost effective and as has already been said, our biggiest issue with rifles is not the rifle or the ammo, it's getting Joe to actually hit his target.
Why are they going with the SCAR if the HK was received more enthusiastically?
