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.

Good kit, well constructed and fit my slide easily. I think I would have preferred the RedBack one style.

I like the look of the this sight and got mine with tritium green insert which seems fairly bright. My only complaint is the edges are very sharp and hang up on clothing when drawing from concealment. Not sure the best way to remedy this problem. Two other minor issues were no wrench to install of locktite which come with most sights.

Getting the maximum out of your weapon can be unlocked by a simple sight set. I am no longer a fan of white dot or blacked out front sights. Fiber optic is my favorite as I shoot a lot outdoors and I find at night you can use your weapon mounted light to enhance your point of aim. 10-8 sights are top quality and install simply. I would recommend these and most likely would not use any other sight on any of my Glocks.

I had been waiting for these sights to be in stock for well over a month and was excited when they finally did. I didn't hesitate and purchased one for one of my Glocks. When it arrived, my first reaction was...'well that's small (referring to the brass bead).' I chose to install it into my Glock 26 Gen 4 because of the shorter sight radius. My thought was that the farther away that brass bead got from my eyes, the harder it was going to be for me to pick it up quickly. The choice was the correct one. I really like it's performance on my baby Glock. My eyes are older and I'm stubborn about getting glasses so your experience may vary. One final note, I took a polishing dremel with some Flitz and made it shine. It now works even better.

I recently installed the 10-8 fiber optic front sight on my G34 (.115 width, .235 height). I highly recommend this sight paired with the 10-8 rear sight. It shot point of aim/point of impact at a measured 30 yards. Another great product!

Bought these to run at work. The rear sight black out is great however the front fiber optic does not gather enough light in dim and lower light situations. It's great for day time or well light ranges however not as a tactical front sight. The fiber optic should be longer and supported by tritium to be effective tactical front sight.

I paired this front sight with the 10-8 black out rear sight on my G19. I focus off the front sight when I shoot, and the fiber optic is bright and easy to acquire. I also like that the front sight has a "rib" in the middle to protect the fiber optic piece, other front fiber optic sights don't have the extra piece. The rear sight is very sturdy. I can easily use the rear sight to "rack" the slide off of when doing one handed reloads. Very well built, very highly recommended.

I love this sight! It was exactly what I wanted it to be! I'm not even interested in shooting a pistol that doesn't have these sights. I've been bragging to my co-workers who will probably be getting them for their duty guns. I installed them myself in just a few minutes. The only negative is that now I have to put a set on ALL my Glocks!

Very nice for precision shooting. The Fiber optic captures light efficiently and it is nice to have the option of green or red. Had a gunsmith install because of the design of a Glock 34 slide.

Very visible, even in low light conditions, and easy to acquire. Had a gunsmith do the installation.
