I think you will find that its because the Americans are far more reluctant to sell their surplus amoured vehicles on the civillian market. Whereas our own glorious MOD will do anything to turn a buck and see no problem with dumping weaponry on the streets.
I think you will see a fair amount of Ex Brit stuff tipping up in Hollywood blockbusters, ive seen 432s masquerading as M113s etc in one (name escapes me at the moment) and ferrets aswell.
