    Glock Optic Height Rear Sight

    I really like 10-8 Performance u-notch sights and this one didn’t disappoint. It was perhaps the most difficult of the 10-8 Performance sight that I’ve fit to date. I’m not a professional gunsmith, I just like working on my own stuff. The sight was oversized for the Glock factory dovetail which I appreciate because I like having a sight that can be fit tightly into a dovetail with set screws and Loctite adding additional security to keep the sight in place. The additional material is what made fitting the sight more difficult. Following the recommended procedures I fit the sight to the slide dovetail which took a bit longer than normal, but wasn’t an issue otherwise. I would not recommend trying to use a sight pushing tool to mount the sight to the slide because it’s likely that you’d damage the slide. If you don’t have the tools recommended by 10-8 or are prepared to follow the instructions, I’d take this to a professional gunsmith for fitting.

    Glock Optic Height Rear Sight

    This is my second set of the sights. I installed one set on a G34.5 MOS and the other on a G45 MOS. Both will be used in conjunction with a Forward Control Design RMR plate and HS 507c or RMR Type 2. Fit and finish is perfect as always. Flack front and black rear is perfect when paired with a red dot. 10-8 is my only choice. I have 10-8 rear sights on 13 Glocks, 2 M&P's and 3 1911's. There is no alternative. Going to install a set of these sights on a G26.3 build in the near future.

    Glock optic height sights

    Set-up; Glock G45 mos, C&H plate, Holosun 507c. Quality seems good, coating is very hard (so hard a standard file won’t touch it). Co-witness= just visible in red dot window. Always a gamble buying optic height sights bc of variances in milling of slides, mounting plate thicknesses, and red dot base thicknesses. If you have a set up close to mine and want a non-obstructive backup iron sight then these should serve you well. If you want a 1/3 or true co-witness for some reason, a slightly taller sight will be wanted.

    Optic Height Rear Sight

    I mounted this on a Glock G19 MOS with a CHPWS plate and Holoson 507C. The Optic Height Rear Sight is the perfect height for a bottom of glass backup sight. It doesn't interfere with the optic, but when needed it is right there. With the appropriate 10-8 front sight it was perfect point of aim right out of the box. It took a tiny bit of filing to fit to my Glock. Excellent quality, solid sight.

    Glad it's made of steel

    I have my backup rears installed in front of my pistol optic, mostly because I like to beat against it if there's a jam, or I need to rack the slide one handed. Glad I found something made of steel, serrated, and suppressor height.

    GLOCK OPTIC HEIGHT REAR SIGHT

    Previously I used another major brand three dot optic height night sights for my Glock 19 Gen 5 MOS. I decided to switch on over to 10-8 for a couple reasons. First, I prefer the U notch versus the square notch on my other sights. Second, I also prefer not having the distraction of the tritium dots on the rear. The quality of these appear great, but I will just throw out there that they did require some fitting/filing. I want to pretend that I am some hardened gun-fitting expert, but sadly, that is not the case. I am a bit more used to just smashing things in with a hammer and calling it a day. I did have to use a file to get it to fit and I think the efforts were well rewarded. I feel like it is fit to my weapon, and also enjoy the top screw that holds it down which I have not seen on most other Glock sights. Plus, let's not discount that I walked away from the experience having learned something new, how to fit a part to your gun versus the smash it in with a hammer until it complies thing I mentioned earlier. One last note: I installed these on a Glock 19 Gen 5 MOS using a Trijicon RMR on a CHPWS plate. These definitely sit much lower than my previous sights offering more of a "lower 1/3" cowitness versus dead in the middle. I find this to be another positive but wanted to leave that note for everyone's awareness. Overall, very happy with this product and recommend it highly.

    Pretty much perfect…

    Not sure what else one could want in a RMR backup rear sight. Appears to be made well. The only thing I can even come up with as a not perfect is the amount of material on the “ tail” sight doesn’t fill the dove tail. Does come with a set screw but would like to see just a bit more material. Great lower 1/4-1/3rd cowitness on a MOS w/ RMR. Exactly what I was looking for at a good price point.

    Fit my Glock 43x

    I was worried it wouldn't fit my milled 43x slide. 100% co witness with my Holosun 507k and direct milled slide.

    Glock MOS sight

    Excellent quality sights. I always check here first to see if they make sights for my pistol before buying elsewhere. I’ve installed several 1911 sights, Glock sights and M&P sights from 10-8 performance. Always excellent quality you know what your getting and seem to require the same fitting which is welcome. No surprises when fitting the sights. Thanks for making an excellent product.
