Why gear up for something they may loose? With the political climate you just mentioned, production and import logistics may not produce a reasonable ROI. If they were ready for this 2 years ago, perhaps.
It may just make more business sense for HK to produce and market the 10 rounders, i.e. P30sk and the VP9sk. Those should be safe from political fallout for at least one or two administrations.
