x5 contractor table saw question

Not sure. You say you bought it about five years ago. Dealer stock would still have the old rail and would also have started stocking the new rail. If you bought a packaged model number it would specify the correct rail as part of the package. And some packages had all of the instruction with the saw under that model number and nothing with the Unifence. Most had nothing with the saw and the manual/instructions with the fence.
Or it could be a simple mistake where the old rail was supplied by mistake by either the dealer (did it come packaged separately or in the fence box?) or by Delta (certainly would be the case if supplied in one box with the new instructions).
The 52" and the later 50" rails never came to the factory, went directly to the distribution center. I don't recall if the 30" were handled that way too. I know that some of them (50") were mislabeled by the supplier about the time PC took over the Delta distribution (just one of many problems at that time, in the beginning of 2000).
It's been a long time since you bought it so I'm not sure that there is anyone (with B & D) who could sort it out after the fact if you wanted to change rails to the new one in the event it was a mistake. As mentioned, nothing wrong with the old rail, just didn't have the flip stop feature and a little harder to assemble.

The fence was in a separate box.
I guess I don't care at this point. I'm considering replacing the unifence with wither a larger beis clone or maybe something from incra. Long term, I plan to get a new table saw anyway so maybe it doesn't matter.

Screw Delta !!!! Go $250 more and get the Grizzly 3hp cabinet saw. I upgraded from a Powermatic 64A contractor saw that I loved and couldn't be more happy with the Grizzly. That saw is a wrecking machine !!!! For the money, there is no better tablesaw on the market. It's as good or better than any comparable saw on the market. If you're going to spend between $500 to $800 on a saw, don't spend you're money twice. Buy the Grizzly the first time and don't look back. You'll be glad you did.
