Being a cast iron top saw, I'd be really surprised if it didn't have a standard 3/4" miter slot.
This looks like a hybrid saw and it's weight in the specs is 197 lbs. That's not a lot of mass for a cast iron top saw, though the table extensions look to be sheet metal.
One thing you can usually bet on with stationery power tools in big box stores it that A) The assembly was terrible, or B) even if the assembly was okay, the customers messed with the tool so much that it's all screwed up. So take a look at the base of the tool to see of it's rocking because of an assembly problem or if the frame bolts are loose. It is an odd leg design for this type of saw, however.
I'm waiting for Knotscott to give this one a review.
