The SCAR-L is not for the rank and file. It is for the special squirrels, the action forces and in a very limited number for the larger police stations. It is not to be taken on normal daily patrols, but it sure makes sense if local stations have such weapons available.

SCAR-L in .300 (yet to be fully developped) is reportedly in the running for "general" adoption by Belgian federal police, replacing (1970s!) FN Uzi

Update: SCAR-SC in .300 has been chosen by Belgian federal police to replace their existing MPs (mainly still FN made UZIs). Local police units will be able to purchase the weapon through the federal contract.

Guestimate: some 2000 weapons total if local police departments also swap their subguns out (mix of H&K mp5, ump, Steyr AUG a3 in 9mm, and some lingering UZIs)
