You just dont see ads like this anymore from S&W. Everything I see on paper and on video are for the M&P line of semi auto handguns and rifles and for their plastic bodyguards. I guess whatever sells and produces the most profit is what they need to be focusing on.

That's the only time I've seen the 940 Model 9mm Centennial mentioned in an ad.

S&W introduced the "reborn Model 640 Centennial" in their 1990 catalog. The catalog states that the 640 is
"rated for +P+ ammunition"....i bet their fidgety liability lawyers didn't like seeing that.
