Agreed. Rockslideusa.com sells some really tight tolerance slides that are ceracoated. Valve lapping compound, 10 minutes of racking and the dreaded compound removal resulted in a slide returning to battery with a 1/2" rack.
These slides are really nice (and inexpensive)-- provided one understands they will require some fitting.

I do this with all my slides, even the Grey Ghost that cost 400$. Even if they are good, this will make them great. I'd rather start tight and custom fit to smooth, then start with slop.
