Product Description

S&W M&P Dovetail Front Sight, for all M&P models.

Our front sights are made from hardened 4140 bar stock for improved durability. Dovetail base is oversized for fitting, in order to accommodate the wide variation in production dimensions.  Blade face is serrated 40lpi. 

  • Fits: ALL M&P models, all sizes, all centerfire calibers
    • Not for the M&P22 pistol
    • Also fits M&P Shield
  • Height:
    • .160" for Compact, Mid Size, Full Size models in all centerfire calibers; M&P Shield 9/.40
      • Factory front is .160" tall

Finished in black salt bath nitrocarburizing, equivalent to the factory finish on the slide, for superior hardness and corrosion resistance.

Fiber optic rod is .060" diameter, with .075" flared head diameter on blade face, comes with 1 each red and green fiber rods, not installed.  

Brass Bead is .075" diameter with polished domed face.


***DUE TO THE WIDE VARIATION IN M&P DOVETAIL SIZES, OUR SIGHTS ARE OVERSIZED AND WILL REQUIRE SOME FITTING.  The sights are finished in black salt bath nitrocarburizing, which produces a hard surface finish similar to the factory slide, and will not respond to a normal file.  We suggest using a diamond hone or file.  If you are not familiar with how to properly fit and install a dovetail sight, we suggest that you seek the services of a *qualified* gunsmith.  We are not liable for damage to the sights resulting from improper installation.

  3. M&P Shield sights 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2016

    Excellent sights. Bought both front and rear sights to the specs recommend by 10-8 performance. Had them installed so I didn't risk messing up the installation. Could not be happier. Although I had mastered the orginal sights on the firearm after some trial and error these put me on target immediately and with a much better sight picture.

  4. Quality Fiber Optic Front Sight 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jan 2016

    I bought and installed this front fiber optic sight for my M&P 9c. It was easy to instal after taking off a little of the coating and metal on the bottom. I used my Dremel tool very carefully and removed a tiny amount each time until I could push the sight in with my fingers about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way. I used the nylon tip on my small hammer to seat it most of the way, hitting only the very bottom of the sight. I then used a delrin "punch" to center the sight. It took me two tries to install the red fiber pin correctly(takes very little heat).
    Perfection! It is bright(.125 size sight) and a tremendous improvement over the factory sight. High quality part!

  5. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2015

    Replaced the standard from site on my M&P pro with the five inch barrel. The stock site was shooting low, so replaced it with the .115 w and .160h fiber optic. Gun now shoots POA plus much better site picture. Also went on with a site pusher no filing whatsoever.

  6. Just like Irish Whiskey, 10-8 products are Top Shelf. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2015

    What more can I say, super quick shipping (Thanks Donna) and excellent products.

  7. Best choice for M&P Front Sight 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2015

    I have installed 10-8 sights on 4 M&P pistols now, excellent quality, excellent shipping, best sight configuration for flash sight picture. I primarily use these pistols for teaching students combative / defensive pistol and the flat black rear and red fiber front ensure even new shooters can rapidly find and focus on the front sight.

  8. Sights Good - Shipping Sucks 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2015

    1. After some filing with diamond Eze-Lap and using a sight-pusher the sight installed fine on my M&P 9c. Took a second try to get the FO installed properly (was my first time). Will shoot it tomorrow at a Progessive Handgun class but it looks good paired with previously installed 10-8 .156 rear sight.

    Really appreciated the article on choosing sights. I'm using 'old eyes' so the tips were helpful.

    2. I think the shipping description in the shopping cart said "3 day priority" via USPS. Label was created on 2/18. USPS tracking said it arrived in Louisville, KY on 2/23 (4- 5 days later?). I'm in the Charleston, SC area so Louisville much out of the way. I received it on Feb. 25, 7 days! The shipping label plainly dispayed "2 Day Priority Mail." Yeah right!

    I think most folks believe USPS isn't as efficient as other services but this one didn't even come close to the service level promised. I don't blame 10-8 but would strongly suggest you reconsider whether such shipping failures damage your customers' goodwill.

  9. Bright in Daylight/ Functional at dusk (M&P Shield) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jan 2015

    My sight combo is .125 width/.160 height front sight with red fiber optic and a .140 rear U-notch. This sight combo is fairly quick for me. My particular front sight required no significant fitting and installation was fairly simple. The hardest part was centering the front sight with a punch. I practiced with an old piece of fiber optic prior to installing what came with the sight just so the job would look better. The fiber optic is very bright in natural daylight. This is not the case in a dusk/dawn setting however. This doesn't bother me as I fully expected that to be the case. You can see the red fiber optic in a darker lighting environment but it won't pop out at you like it does in broad daylight. If you have light in your face, the sights essentially become blacked out sights. The article about selecting sights is pretty spot on.

  10. Replaced stock Front Sight on Full Size M&P 9mm / 4.25" 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2015

    Excellent Front Sight replacement and even better when paired with the 10-8 Performance Rear "U-Notch" Sight. Very bright and quick to pick up in good light and even at dusk. Cut my split times way down over the stock sight that I had blacked out the white dots. Will now be looking to replace the Front Sights on all of my other M&P Pistols - it's that good.

    Did require some minor filing, but ensured a good tight fit. Easy to file - just need a small diamond stone or a diamond coated sanding stick. Piece of cake on the installation. Very pleased.
