Fiber Optic Night/Day, Orange Night/Day, Yellow Brass Bead Some Glock slides are thinner at the front sight hole, and the sight's mounting post may protrude.  This causes the set screw to tighten against the sight instead of the slide.  To correct this, file some material off the bottom of the post (indicated in silver) so that the post sits below flush.

  • Width: .125", .115"
    • Blade width is strictly personal preference.  Thinner fronts cover less of the target area and are preferred for speed.  Thicker blades like the .125" are preferred for improved accuracy and are our most popular.

All sights include set screw.

**Our front sight posts are made to maximum dimensions for a tight fit in your slide.  However, due to extremely wide variation in the mounting holes in the Glock slides, our posts are sometimes oversized.  If a gentle tap with a nonmarring hammer does not seat the sight, file just a little off the outside with a diamond hone and try again.

    Best sight, no question

    I only run 10-8 sights on all my pistols. Best out there IMO.

    New Front Sight, same Awesome Quality

    I have 10-8 fiber optic, tritium and brass bead front sights on all my glocks. Decided to try the Night/Day front sight on my G17.5 MOS. So far I am really liking it. Good visibility during the day and nice and bright in the dark. I went with the standard .215 height as I do with all my glock 19's and 17's. I do not worry about distances when I shoot. I adjust my POA, these sights work great.

    Preferred .235 height with the MOS rear sight

    I found that I preferred the .235 height for my Glock Gen5 19 MOS and Glock Gen5 45 MOS, as well as a Glock 48, with the 10-8 Glock MOS rear sight. I tried the recommended .250 height sights and I found that for my ‘point of aim’ (at 10yds) they I shot too low. The .235 worked perfectly for me and I bought a set for each Glock.

    Perfection!

    The fiber opt front sight combined with the U notch rear sight is the perfect set up for my new G 17 Gen 5 duty pistol. The fiber optic front is fast to pick up and easy to see in all conditions.

    MOS/Front Sight Combo on Glock 48

    Looking for a set of sights for my Glock 48. It will be my primary off-duty carry gun and I was quite happy with the 10-8 sights I use on my Glock 35. There is some issue about what sights will have the correct impact (elevation) as a lot of people are using sights for the 42/43. 10-8 specifically recommends the MOS and front sight combos as addressing the longer sight radius of the 48. The install was a snap, rear sight was snug but easily installed with a derlin punch. Sight picture is excellent. Very happy and will continue to use 10-8 sights when buying Glocks and replacing the plastic sights.

    Bright fiber optic makes a world of difference!

    Night and day difference between the fiber optic and its stock counterpart. The front sight is a breeze to pick up. My slow fire accuracy improved noticeably. Drawing from concealment and breaking the first shot was also much easier to do with the 10-8 fiber optic front sight. Its the best I’ve used and wouldn’t choose anything else.

    .250”h for G19Gen5

    By far one of the best Fiber Optic sights on the market. There is a recess to keep the rear bulb shielded, so you get a clear crisp sight picture, without the fiber optic obscuring the overall shape of the sight. The FO rod is well guarded with a shield in the middle, and the U-Notch rear makes for very fast and intuitive shooting. Be sure to use the .250h front for Gen5’s and you’ll have POA/POI at 25yds and closer.

    Easy install and do what they’re made to do.

    I wanted a more POA/POI shot placement and opted for the .250 front sight with the already installed rear sights. Easy to follow tutorial for installing the sight and fiber optic. So far great product. Thanks!

    Warning: 0.215" isn't right for G45

    Contrary to the advice in the description advising a 0.215" front (and this is noted in a caveat about Gen 5 so it's not entirely a surprise) my G45 with the 0.250" rear sight impacts ~2.0-2.5" high at ~10 yards which turns out to suggest a ~0.250" height front would have been appropriate. As for the sight, it's pretty good quality. The fiber is a bit larger than I'd like, but that's subjective. It definitely seems durable.
