All of our front sights feature 40lpi serrations to provide crisp visual focus and glare reduction. Finished in black QPQ salt bath nitrocarburizing (aka Melonite, same as the Glock slide).
All sights include set screw.
**Our front sight posts are made to maximum dimensions for a tight fit in your slide. However, due to extremely wide variation in the mounting holes in the Glock slides, our posts are sometimes oversized. If a gentle tap with a nonmarring hammer does not seat the sight, file just a little off the outside and try again.
SOME IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT GLOCK SIGHTS:
Factory Glocks tend to shoot anywhere from 2-4" high at 25 yards, usually necessitating the use of a 6 o'clock hold when shooting bullseye and other small targets. Keep in mind that if you lined up 20 Glocks, all of the same model and caliber, not every single one would shoot to the same point of impact with a given set of sights. Glock makes a number of different height rear sights to accommodate the inherent variations in points of impact. With this in mind, an aftermarket front/rear set with a standardized height for all models - such as the one we've been selling for a few years now - can only provide an approximate elevation setting for any particular gun.
The .215" height is the most commonly used of our front sight heights, and typically provides a point of impact from 0 to approximately 2" high at 25 yards. Results will vary with individual pistols. The .235" height front sight lowers point of impact approximately 2-3" at 25 yds from the .215" tall front sight, and the .250" height lowers the point of impact approximately 3.5-5" at 25 yds, depending on your model's sight radius. One inch of elevation change at 25 yards equates to approximately .007" of front sight height. We do not recommend sighting in your pistol at any distance closer than 25 yards, as the amount of possible error generated by sighting in at shorter distances will create issues when you shoot at longer ranges.
So how are you supposed to know what to put on the front of your gun to match the rear sight you got from us? Currently the simplest answer is to leave your existing front sight in place, shoot it at 25 yards with your new 10-8 rear in place and print a group for elevation. Measure your existing front sight, and using the .007" of front sight = 1" at 25 yards equation (I know, no one said there'd be math...), figure out how much taller or shorter you need to go. Everyone tends to like or accept different elevations, which further compounds the difficulty in preselecting a front sight. I like my guns to shoot about .5" to 1" high at 25 yards so that I can see the point of impact over the tip of my front sight blade. You can also use our Glock Sight In Tool, a plastic one-use sight blade, to sight your pistol in by filing the front sight height to fit. Once sighted in, remove the Sight In Tool, measure it, then order the correct front sight.
Lastly, once a sight has been installed, understand that we can't accept it back as a return. Once the sight has been installed, it can no longer be resold, so it would go on the scrap pile. However, we want you to be happy with your 10-8 sight set, so we will work with you on getting set up properly. Please contact us for a discounted price on additional front sights if your initial purchase does not provide the desired point of impact.

Recently purchased this fron sight for my g31. Took it to the range and this thing is fast and extrememly accurate. When used in conjunction with a weapon light, the fiber optic is not pronounced but extremely visible!

10-8 Performance's Brass Dot sight in .215 x.125 works very well for what I wanted, shrinking my shot groups at 25 yards with my G34.
I am very happy with my purchase and will think of 10-8 Performance first when next I want to change sights on a pistol.

Great front sight. Swapped out my Warren Tactical Sevigny front sight in favor for the 10-8. Fiber optic is bigger and so much easier for me to pick up.

Ordered the fo front sight to match the rear I ordered from dillon ( only one I could find with the .156" notch). Easy to install, great sight combo, and shipping from 10-8 almost beat dillon that I ordered a week before. Waiting for more wide notch rear sights and the brass bead front for my next sight set.

10 minutes to install with a 10-8 glock front sight tool this sight is night and day over the toy sights the glock comes with. Buy a set, why stop at only the front!

The combination of the Red Fiber Optic front sight and the black rear on my Glock 26 has made front site acquisition effortless! By the 3rd time I drew the weapon it felt as if it was the 100th. Love this combo! No problem on the install either didnt even open the file kit .

I got the .235 x .100 fiber optic for my Glock 34 that I use for IDPA. (Rear sight is a Warren Tactical plain). I am very happy with the sight. I like the fact that it uses the bigger .060 fiber as opposed to the .040. The sight fit perfectly without filing and it is well constructed.

I never thought I would ever install a fiber optic sight on my pistol, but after seeing the 10-8 one and reading the reviews on it I wanted to give it a try. I am really impressed by the quality and craftsmanship of this sight. My older eyes pick up the sight quickly and the fiber optic makes it easy to move from target to target. Thank you for a awesome product and fast shipping.

During the day time the sight is great, but once you get inside toward the evening or outside in the dark it didn't quite live up to my expectations. The sight wouldn't gather enough light in those situations like I hoped. Still it is a great sight and with the use of a tac light in low light situations it helps make the fiber optic brighter.

This sight works perfectly with my 10-8 rear on my Glock 17. Pushed right into the slot, no trouble installing. These are some sturdy sights and am very impressed again with this products quality.
