Fiber Optic Rod, approximate 1.25" length, .060" diameter. Sold individually.
These rods are the correct replacement diameter for all 10-8 fiber optic front sights.

I felt silly ordering a $1.00 fiber optic rod and paying $6 shipping, but they went above and beyond and included some scrap rods as well. Great color, easy install thanks to their video.

Had front and rear sights replaced with fiber optic front site and no dot rear sight. Product was excellent. Shipment was timely. Had the sights professionally installed. Much better sight picture than the original sights. Followed the suggstions of 10-8 performance for sight measurements. I love the SW Shield and these sights make it an even better firearm to shoot.

The way the 10-8 Performance fiber optic front sight is designed, the FO filaments tend to last quite a while. I haven't had one break on me yet. I've been learning to avoid getting solvent on them so they stay bright; but even as they age, they still perform. I prefer red.

After playing around with the green and red fiber optic that came with the sight, I preferred the green sites so I ordered extras so I don't run out.

I have always liked the red fiber optic. However, I recently tried the green rod while changing sight heights. The green catches my eye so much better without washing out the crisp front sight picture that I changed to green on all my 10-8 sights. As an added bonus the green allows you to sight into the future as well as the past.. and thats handy!

The rod on my Fusion FO broke, this fit perfectly and does the job.

Over the last couple of years, I've really transitioned from night sights to fiber optics. Fiber optic rods are not rocket science, and they work. Their only inherent weakness is the likelihood that someday under hard use, the rod will need replacing. Easy enough to install and one rod is enough for two replacements. Cheap insurance and you know it will work, they are the same as you get in the packaging when you order 10-8 sight sets.

This fiber rod is exactly what 10-8 said it was, a perfect replacement for the old one I broke. Easy to install and super bright!

Great replacement & easy to replace. Definitely long enough to get another FO replaced.
