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.

    Front Sight

    I initially bought the day/night front sight but was not satisfied with it. After the purchase of this fiber optic front sight it am extremely pleased. The sight itself is very protected, strong, and designed well. The fiber optic is great! I have used 10-8 Performance for several things before and recommend them to others. Thanks y'all.

    Orange Night/ Day Front Sight

    This is my 3rd Night/Day Sight from 10-8. I am really digging these front sights. This one went on my 43X, accompanied with the Gen 2 MOS .140 rear sight. I have installed setup on 3 Glock so far and is my new 10-8 go to for the foreseeable future.

    Glock 22 front sight

    I bought this sight for my Glock 22 and added the tool to switch it out. Too bad my Glock is pre-screw so I’m screwed. I guess I’ll try to punch the old sight out to get this one in. A warning would have been nice. Website said “all models”.

    Brass bead glock front sight

    The brass bead front sight (glock) is a great product. 10-8 Performance is the only place I could find it. Vickers has a gold bead, but its 75 dollars. This brass bead looks great in daylight. At night your sight Is black used with your weaponlight. Brass/gold have been sights on handguns/longguns for over a hundred years. Hats off to 10-8 Performance. Elmer Keith would have been proud of this sight(not sure he'd like the Glock)

    Yellow Night/ Day Front Sight

    This is my second Yellow Night/Day Front sight that I have purchased from 10-8. The first was a .215 for my Gen 5 Glock 17 MOS. This sight was a .235 for my Gen 5 Glock 34 MOS. I have 10-8 sights on all my glocks including tritium front sights, fiber optic front sights and a brass pin front sight one a G19. So far, I the Night/Day sights are my favorite. Quick and easy to pickup in all light conditions.

    Glock front sight

    Installs easily, looking forward to taking my G20 to the range to confirm zero. Looks good with the new rear sight as well.

    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.
