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. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Highest Quality Parts 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jul 2016

    I have been using 10-8 Performance sights on my pistols since they became available for the 1911 and have become the STANDARD for my pistols. Knowing the parts were designed and tested with hard use in mind, you can buy with confidence. 10-8 Performance consistently produce the highest quality parts.

  7. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2015

    This is a very high quality product. The only suggestion, not complaint, is that it should be wider, by another 1/16'' to 1/8'', not longer. The length is fine.

  8. i give it a 10 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2015

    I Installed it on my colt MKVI series 70, and there was no fitting required. It's a must have!

  9. amazing quality and design 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2014

    Cannot be happier with this precision slde stop. The fit is perfect.truly in my pretty in a work of art.

    I initially got this to replace the slide stop on my sigsauer 1911, which was a cheap looking MIM part. However, it's so pretty I swapped it out with my Ed Brown 1911. The Ed Brown slide stop, which pales in comparison, is now in my Sigg 1911.

  10. perfect fit and function 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2014

    After a few premature slide locks during an IDPA competition, I ordered one for my 9mm Commander. Completely dropped in straight out of the package. Cured the problem completely.
