Those look like the normal narrow slides DEC typically used (not the
narrow ones that pivot used on a PDP-11/20 or the big wide ones used on
later PDP-11 mounting boxes). I don't have any exactly like that
available. I do have some that are the same size, and might work, but
the detent is different. The detent is a little lever that catches on a
pin. On the slide pairs I have available to spare, one side has a
shorter slide insert than the other - and it is possible only one side
has the detent.
If you think you might be interested, drop me a line, and I will pop out
to my storage unit and take some photos.

Thinking I had an easy solution to the missing outer
slide, I ordered a
$40 pair of new heavy-duty rack slides from eBay. Beautiful pieces and
ball-bearing slides, decent quality hardware too. Only had to drill a
couple of holes in them so they'd match the drive chassis, mounted
everything up, and then discovered that they were 1/4" too narrow, no
matter how I arranged the brackets, and the drive wouldn't slide between
the rack rails. Crap!
So I bought two 24" pieces of 2 x 2 x 1/8" angle iron at the local steel
place for a whopping $1.40, drilled four holes in each, sanded off the
scale/surface rust, bolted them to the rack and slid the drive right in.
You can't even see the "homemade" part unless you're really looking,
too. Should've done that to start with. If I ever need to service the
drive, I'll just slide it back out and set it on the bench...
However, if anyone should stumble over a set of stock RX sliding rails
I'd be interested for the sake of originality ;)
Jay, let me know exactly what measurements you would need. There's a
pretty good view of the inside rail on the second pic.
