Product Description

*****Please note that S&W slide dovetails vary wildly from gun to gun, and filing with a diamond file or hone may be necessary for proper installation. Our sights are all the same size (and have been the same dimensions for years), and while they are intended to fit snugly in most slides, the same sight may slide through a particular slide or be too tight to start into another. We can't control the slide dimensions, all we can do is keep our sights a constant size. We are not liable for destruction/damage to sights during installation.

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.

  • FITS: ALL calibers, all sizes of M&P, including Pro and 9L long slides and new 2.0 Compact/Full Size etc.
    • Not for S&W M&P .22

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 (.330" total height, .240" net blade height), 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.

  1. The best! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2019

    10-8 Performance sights for my Smith & Wesson M&P 9 M2.0 Compact, are the only sights that work with my astigmatism. The fiber optic front is more durable than others on the market, and the rear sight is everything I could hope for. These are the only sights I use on my handguns.

  2. Great Sight! Install for the M&P version can be tricky 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2018

    I now have these rear sights installed on two guns and they are great. Love the U-notch with fiber optic combination. Really draws the eyes' focus to the front sight. Install of the sight on my Glock went through without a hitch. Install on the M&P was very problematic until I figured out the trick. The instructions say to remove material from the "sides" of the dovetail. In another review, someone suggested taking material off of the bottom of the sight instead. Once I did that, installation was a breeze. Just put the sight in a vise, upside down and gave the bottom a few swipes with a large file. Test fit. Repeat as necessary. Will be ordering more of these sights for other handguns.

  3. Impossible to install. Sight damaged. Slide needs refinish. 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2018

    Really disappointed in this rear sight. I like the blacked out U-nothc rear with fiber front. Recently bought a 10-8 set for a Glock and had no issues installing it. Decided to install a 10-8 set in an M&P 2.0 Compact which is my primary carry gun. Had no problems at all installing the front sight. I've followed all instructions for installing the rear. Filed material off of the dovetail as instructed. Got it slid in about 1/3 of the way by hand and then tried my sight pusher. Sight pusher wouldn't work on this sight. Put the slide in a vice and started using a hammer and brass punch. Got the sight in about 90% of the way and it won't go any further. I've tried using Kroil to get it to move. Tried freezing the slide. I've destroyed 4 brass punches in the meantime trying to get the sight either on or off. Can''t even get the sight off of the gun to put the OEM sight back on. So, now I'm without a primary carry gun until I figure something else out. Again, really disappointed with the installation of this sight. If I could get it installed, it's a great sight. But fit / install is terrible.

  4. Very happy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2018

    Great fit and finish. Sight picture is excellent. As stated in the product description, the rear sight needs to be filed down before installation. I used 320 grit sand paper w/ no issues.

  5. Very, Very Tight 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2018

    I rate this rear sight as 4 stars (as opposed to 5) only because it is so tight in its fitting. I took my sights to a gunsmith to install and he even marred the finish on the rear sight while installing it. I cannot comment on the skill of the gunsmith as this is the first time I've used his services (might be the last). Otherwise the sigh seems very well made and sturdy. When aiming the gun obviously the marred area is not visible, thus has no impact on performance. I would recommend a competent gunsmith install these sights if you purchase them as they are not easy to fit.

  6. M&P Rear Sight 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2018

    I've used 10-8 sights on many 1911's over the years, and have liked the sight alignment and picture it provides. It was a natural choice to go with the 10-8 sight for my M&P, and true to form the alignment and picture are top notch!

  7. Great Sight Pucture 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    I really like the sight picture you get with this sight. It is very durable and well made. I had some difficultly with the installation. Could not get it to go all the way in the first time. Had to remove it which resulted in me damaging the side a little. After a great deal a filing it went in tight.

  8. Awesome Rear Sight 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2017

    As I have 10-8 rear sights on my S.A. Loaded and G19, my .156 M&P rear sight is hands down outstanding. Fitting was as expected for the wide range of diamensions S&W has on the dovetails...nothing hard to overcome. Solid quality and finish. Quick shipping as well.

  9. When only the best will do. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Dec 2016

    10-8 have the best rear sights on the market bar none. Get them, you will not be dissatisfied.

    Donna is a dream to work with too. You place the order and she has them in the mail forthwith. What more can you ask for.

  10. Here is the thing................ 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2016

    These sights are top notch. They will take some work to get them into some SW full size. Get a diamond file and take the stock sight out first and compare the dovetail depth on both sights. You will see that the 10-8 can be quite a bit thicker than your stock sight. You will right away see approximately how much material you will need to remove from the bottom of the sight to get close to the dimension of the SW sight. I ended up using a dremel to take off enough to get a start on finishing its fitting with the diamond lap file. Since this rear has a set screw to hold it in place, the fit does not have to be as tight as press fit so I found that if you can get this 1/2 way in, a few light taps will settle it snugly for possible windage adjustments in the future. Its a great addition to the M&P and worth the time to get it right
