I just went through and found the May / June 1990 edition of of Shooting Times. It had a several page spread on the creation of the 40 cal and the 4006. "S&W Captures 10mm Punch In A 9mm Frame!" I can't tell you how many times I read that edition when it came out; and ironically it is one of the precious few magazines I have kept over the years. I knew at that time that I would have one when I turned 21.

The cover picture shows the older bright color solid hammer and trigger. I snapped a pic of my 94 vintage 4006 and it is the production model with the dark trigger and dark, hollowed out hammer.
