A poster at HKpro asked in a recent thread "why no HK handgun in 10mm?"

some of the better responses,

Quote:
Because it won't sell. If there are 10 people who want the round there are another 50,000 who don't give a rip. Companies have tried it, lost, and tossed the idea.
Quote:
HK focuses on military / LEO market, which has zero interest in 10MM.

There's no large scale market for it. 10mm is one of my favorite calibers for sheer semi-auto power but it's just not popular enough. ..and with HK, no military demand means no market.
