I don't think the Elite was ever made in 40, just 9mm and 45acp. He may have been talking about the recent Expert and Elite 45s they released to the California market in limited numbers. (Experts, incidentally, have been offered in all calibers.) 9mm Elites haven't been imported since the mid 2000s.
