    I had a P226 split in exactly the same place, only it split about 3/4 the length of the slide.

    Showed my insurance agent and nek minit a brand new P226 arrived at my place.

    Cheers

    My insurance won't cover 'use' related damage.

    I might still be overselling it with that description. Wish I bought a ruger instead at the time.

    Not the only one I have seen crack there. I have one that is crack free but it has done bugger all. Mags had issues when I first got it but goes sweet now. Trigger is pretty shit but it seems to shoot alright.
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Is it muzzle forward?

    Have you spoken top the Retailer or the Manufacturer?

    After all that might not fit into the "Fair Wear and Tear" category and may well be a "Manufacturing Defect".

    Cheers

    The insurance company was NZI.

    Had all my firearms specifically insured for damage amongst other things.

    Nearly 3 years. Receipt is dated 25/02/2013. Somewhere between 100-200 rounds through it.
    5.2 cm overbarrel from thread shoulder. I had it made to be the max overbarrel it could be without contacting the handguard when installed on a 14.5" barrel with a 12" rail.

    Sounds like a strong case for a replacement under the consumer protection laws. A worthwhile bit of case law was the judgment made against dell computers a few years back.
    Basically, anyone would fairly expect the product to last much longer than it did.
