Product Description

Our second generation slide stop is an all original design that is totally reengineered to provide you a whole new level of functionality. 

  • Long wide pad for positive manipulation
  • Interior of lobe angled for easy installation - no more scratches on your slide!
  • Engagement surfaces optimized for positive lockback
  • Geometry improves slingshot slide release during reloads
  • Design improves detent spring pressure to minimize chance of premature lockback
  • .200" pin for improved lockup
  • Right end of pin has protruding convex domed tip, same as GI slide stops

Fits all 1911 pattern pistols, including Govt/Commander/Officer sizes and 2011/Caspian/Para double column frames.

.45 ACP version has .200" lobe protrusion.

9mm/.38/.40 version has .220" lobe protrusion.  **All calibers other than .45 will use 9/.38 slide stop**

Machined from bar stock and heat treated.

Carbon steel version has black oxide finish.

Stainless Steel version has matte bead blast finish.


**While this part is a drop in fit in most pistols, gunsmith fitting may be required on some guns.  The .200" diameter pin may be bigger than your factory unit (they tend to run .198-.199") and may not drop right into the frame hole or may create a tighter lockup with the barrel's lower lugs.

***A popular question is "will this fit in my XXX 1911."  As above, every single 1911 will be a little different, and may or may not require gunsmith fitting.

  1. 100% perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2018

    Comparing to the OE MIM part is really unfair, as the 10-8 piece is in a whole different class. Perfectly machined, well finished and a perfect fit. An extra peace of mind and better "ledge" for activation too.

  2. Perfect drop in replacement. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2018

    Perfect fit for my Kimber Ultra Carry II, well machined and the shelf matched my thumb safety perfectly.

  3. great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2017

    I bought this item. It will Not Work with a Springfield 1911 A1 loaded ss. I cant return it I lost my e-mail and info when I bought it. The slide will not go all the way forward and the thumb safety will not engage. But I have to say its machined well.

  4. great part. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th May 2017

    I have put this on every 1911 full size and commander, I've owned without any fitting required. I love the "shelf" instead of the angled surface of other slide locks.

  5. Drop In - Immediate Improvement - Sig TacOps 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2017

    I had been experiencing occasional "failure to lock back" on the last round on my Sig TacOps 1911 after about 2500 rounds through the pistol. Did my research and purchased a 10-8 Gen 2 slide stop. It fit perfectly without any modifications and the "failures" immediately disappeared. I decided to head off any future problems with my "other" Sig TacOps and installed one on that pistol as well. Dropped in, perfect function as I expected. Junk that MIM stuff and go with what works!

  6. Another drop in item from 10-8 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2016

    Needed something with a little more reach/different configuration than the EGW HD slide stop that I usually use to get a better thumb perch for releasing the slide on my Black ops frame /Colt slide hi-cap. Thought I'd give one of these a try. Worked out being just what was needed to get the job done. .200 pin was spot on, flawless machine work, barrel lock up solid when in battery, empty mag/ slide lock back works as it should. The effortless way this slide stop makes it past the plunger pin when installing was an eye opener......And the configuration is perfect if using a Hi-cap frame/VZ grips combination.

    Thanks again 10-8

  7. Love the Profile 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Sep 2016

    My STI 4.0 DS VIP came with a super low profile slide stop. This one is much better. Its larger profile makes it so much easier for me to manipulate.

  8. Outstanding Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2016

    This well made and finished product is an inexpensive item to improve the performance of well-made firearms. It's amazing what a difference of 0.002 inches in diameter can do. The as-received slide stop fit perfectly into my Colt 1911 9mm Competition Series pistol. Point of impact at 21 feet was changed by an inch but groups were tighter.

  9. Exceeded My Expectaions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2016

    I always cringe when I buy an upgrade/replacement for my Kimber Super Carry Ultra+ as there always seems to be an "issue". HOWEVER this time it was a very pleasant experience. The SS slide stop fit perfectly right out of the package. The bonus part is the color/finish matches the frame perfectly instead of the original black slide stop which matched the slide. It is a much cleaner look.

  10. Design definitely improves function. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2016

    This product inserts into the frame and engages the plunger detent pin more easily than the standard slide stop design. An added feature is the generous shelf for manual manipulation with very nice machining. Highest recommendation.
