Found an aftermarket slide for sale, from a vendor with a very good reputation. Oem patterned G34 slide in 416 stainless steel but the rockwell hardness is only 36-38. Will it hold up, this seems pretty soft to me.

Which Rockwell scale? I've read the Glock slides are 30RC not sure that information is accurate but seems reasonable.

Too brittle, it will shatter or fracture. Diamonds can be "cut".

For slide, you do need some ductility or malleability to tolerate the shock forces without losing form or breaking.
