Some years back a quantity of frame rails were made that were not in spec and resulted in breakage. The part of the one piece part that sticks out of the frame that the slide ride on would break off.

The frame itself isn't actually damaged, but with the part molded into the frame when it was made, there's no way to fix it other then replacing the frame.
