The 10-8 Performance rear sight is precision CNC machined from heat treated 4140 bar stock and finished in black QPQ salt bath nitrocarburizing (aka Melonite, same as the Glock slide). All 10-8 sights feature a U notch for rapid, intuitive alignment with dot such as on our tritium insert, brass bead, and fiber optic front sights. The rear face is plain black, serrated at 40 lpi to reduce glare in varied lighting conditions.
User installation instructions included.
Please contact us for a discounted price on additional front sights if your initial purchase does not provide the desired point of impact.

I figure there are three considerations when evaluating sights; ordering, installation and zeroing. Ordering is easy and accurate if you utilize the recommendations available on the website. 10-8 Performance communicates well relative to the status of your order and ships quickly. Initial inspection should satisfy the most critical eye. Rock solid construction, no sharp edges and good, non-reflective finish. Installation is a breeze with a brass drift, a small hammer and the correct size hex key, which is included. Zeroing is relatively fast. Of course, it does require a certain amount of fiddling, but that can be reduced with the use of a caliper w/depth measurement capability. The eyeball method works too. I'm not positive that the U shaped notch actually aids me in my style of shooting, but it certainly is no disadvantage either. I have 10-8 Performance sights on 3 of my pistols and couldn't be more satisfied.

I firmly believe that the 10-8 U notch rear sight is the best upgrade you can make to your firearm when it comes to sights. The quality of the part is second to none. The U notch, when combined with a fiber optic front sight, allows for extremely fast target acquisitions and equally as fast follow up shots. Though it's not technically as accurate as the std square system at full speed, it's easily over looked by how fast you can pick up the sight picture and get rounds on target. The accuracy difference is pretty negligible but the speed is far and above. The rear serrations kill any glare. Though the dovetail is pretty tight in the slide the locking screw adds extra insurance that the sight isn't going to move. The shelf helps with one handed loading and manipulation drills. You can rack it off your shoe, belt, basically anything you can hook the sight on. I cannot say enough about how much I like this sight.

Having become tired of the fragility of fiber front sights and wanting a durable combat sight that is easy to pick up I opted for the 10-8 .140 u-notch rear with a brass bead front. This gives me the simplicity of iron sights with a high contrast dot that will not break or fall out. The finish and shape of these sights make them very snag resistant and durable and the flat area on the front of the rear sight allows for one handed slingshot reloading on the heel of my boot or on a sturdy belt.
Excellent fit and superb all around design. Am in the process of replacing the sights on all of my guns to this setup.

What a great idea.....open up that rear notch, more light to actually see my front sight clearly. I've been doing this a long time....shooting and training folks to shoot pistols defensively. This is the most effective advance in pistol sights I've ever used.

I used a .156" U Rear in conjunction with a .215" tritium front sight. They were mounted on a Glock 19. I took a 2 day "Fast and Accurate" class, and the set up was perfect. I brought my back-up gun (Glock 19 with XS Big Dots) Just in case, but I never took it out of the box. The 10-8 sight setup was just awesome.

The sight on Gen 4 Glock will fit 1/3 of the way in Dovetial. The video makes one think that using a standard file will adjust the dovetail to make the fit better - WRONG! You can fiule til the cows come home with the hardened steel of the 10-8 sight. Recommend a diamond file. Otherwise you will have to hammer it with a plastic hammer - makes to difficult centering. Get a diamond file, folks, standard file on that is worthless. Once on with fiber front - it is an awsome sight. A great sight picture - far better than stock. Excellant sight. Video for the file job is poor.

I've installed a 10-8 Rear Sight on all of my Handguns. I love the U-Notch rear sight and prefer the serrated rear over the plain rear. If you are one of those guys who wants to be able to rack the slide using one hand these sights can do the job. I a .140 Rear w/ a .115 Front on my Gen 4 G34/G35. Installation was a breeze. The .140 Rear to .115 Front gave me a close 1:2:1 for sight picture to the width of the front sight.
