Note to self: Right NOW you are wasting your time.
With the proliferation of civilian legal 5.7 firearms, I doubt the 4.6 will ever catch up. HK has little chance of creating a civilian market for it's proprietary cartridge and I doubt they have any desire to do so.
To my knowledge us patents are 20yrs
5.7 was patented on 12/5/1989 so other ammo makers should be comming out with it any day now and the price should go down.

United States Patent: 5012743
If ps90 is making money at about $1500 with 16" I don't see y hk could not do it. It could not cost more then 200 to make mp7 on a mess production line. I know it cost Gluck $60 to 80 to make a pistol.
FN started from zero, and HK would have to do the same.
