Got my first replacement slide (of two) back today.

Great finish, close inspection shows the rercoil hole tapered, with what looks to my eyes anyway, like a slight raised area around the hole, as you might get if it was drilled from the back, and what seems to be those machine marks opposite the extractor.

According to the brown paper wrapping, it was made in June 2006.

Just curious as to what dates other folks are getting back.

Ditto for mine.
I think the date on the paper is when the paper was made. It's the anti-corrosion treated paper and may loose it's effectiveness after time. I am pretty sure mine had the same date. I sent my old one back in it so can't tell you for sure. Hope this one holds up for you.

This does not sound good. I'm still waiting for my replacement to come back. Previous slides have all had those machining marks and the tapered hole. They have all had the peening at the rod hole. I have had paper dated January 2004.

I seem to recall conversations earlier about "when was your P3AT being made..." coming to the conclusion that the date on the paper is when the paper was made, not what was wrapped in it.

You're right, just checked the cromwell website, and it IS the paper...

That's a relief. ;D
