What ever happened to the FN SCAR that was adopted by special forces? Is it being issued? Did it disappear?

It is currently in LRIP status.

LRIP = Low Rate Initial Production. That means that FN is in the process of ensuring that they can build the gun under prodution conditions, and still have a product that works. This is typically the most difficult phase of any military program
