Our rear sight for the M&P is precision CNC machined from heat treated 4140 bar stock, and are designed to withstand the rigors of hard duty use. The sight features a U notch for fast alignment with tritium, bead, or fiber optic front sights. The rear face is serrated at 40 lpi to reduce glare in varied lighting conditions. The sight blade is thick enough to allow setting tritium vials as dots or bars if one so chooses, and is contoured and dehorned for comfortable handling and carry. Finished in black salt bath nitrocarburizing, equivalent to the factory finish on the slide, for superior hardness and corrosion resistance.
The rear sight fits all calibers and all sizes of the M&P series, and is compatible in height with the factory front sight (.160" tall x .140" wide). Rear sight height is identical to the factory sight, and will not change point of impact. User installation instructions included. This sight will NOT fit S&W 1911 or "Third Gen" (3913, 5906, etc) series pistols.
**These sights are too wide to correctly fit the Shield. We have dedicated sights for the Shield.
***These sights do NOT fit the M&P CORE series pistols.
****The left front of the sight has a small angle machined into it. This is for easier installation, and is not a machining error. We know the S&W Armorer Manual specifies that the sights go in/out from the right, but that is for their factory sights. Ours can go in/out from either side, as shown in our video.

These sights were exactly what I was hoping they would be and exactly what I wanted. The flat black "louvered" design virtually eliminates glare and the wide "U" channel makes for rapid target acquisition. Eliminating the 2 white dots on the rear sight of my M&P 45c really makes focusing on the front sight and getting on target much easier. This is my second set.

I just installed the .115 rear sight (coupled with a .115 front sight) on a 4.25 M&P based on a recommendation from Frank Proctor. I have to say I really like this set up. I normally run a .140 rear and a .100 front on my 5 inch guns. I'll give them a good run for a while before I make a final decision on this set up. The sight itself is like all the other 10-8 sights I have used...well designed, well made and well executed. They take a little time to fit, but the result is well worth it.

This sight is exactly what I was looking for. The wide gap makes rapid target acquisition very easy and the flat surface eliminates any glare. I couldn't believe how much better I shot my M&P 45c the very first time I shot after installing the sight.

10-8 blacked out rear sights are the best. I will only use them for all carry guns from now on. I have the Redback 1/10-8 sights on 2 of my Glock's which lead me to buy this. 10-8 from here on out.

A wide rear sight combined with a slim front fiber optic sight provides the fastest sight picture possible. The extra room to the bottom provided by the notch allows much faster (the more you practice, the faster you get) sight and target acquisition and more leeway while moving to or tracking new targets.
Well made, strong finish, ideally serrated, and factory height for ease of matching the front sight.

Nice clean rear sight. Makes it very easy to locate the fiber optic front. Big improvement over the factory white dots.

Perfect black rear sight. I prefer the true U shape of the notch vs. the "flat bottom" U with 90 degree angles. The .140 is perfect for my M&P full size 9 when pair with the FO front sight. Shot my first IDPA match with them and my score was better...had to be the sights because I hadn't been practicing.

Love these sights . I've used 5 sets on my M&P's. They are perfect for older eyes. They have helped my shooting . I shoot better with these sights than any others I've tried .

In regards to blacked out rear sights, what more do you really need? No glare and the U notch is simple and easy to pick up. Decent ledge to rack the slide on whatever you want. The only thing I would change would be to have a steeper ledge but that's just me trying to find something. There is nothing else on the market like it at all. To put it simply, I now only buy firearms that these sights are available for. Would love to see some sights for the Glocks come back in stock again!

Bought these for my M&P45 FS. Watched the install video so that made me buy the EZE-LAP diamond files from amazon. I did try a regular file just to see if it would work but like 10-8 says the sights are hard. Get the diamond files. Used these to do a little fitting which made installing without damaging the sight.
I also bought the 10-8 front fiber optic sight which I really love!
I use the red fiber.
To install the sights I used the MGW sight pusher for the M&P front & rear sights. This pusher is made like a tank and made the job easy.
Like I say I love these sights!!
