*****Please note that S&W slide dovetails vary wildly from gun to gun, and filing with a diamond file or hone may be necessary for proper installation. Our sights are all the same size (and have been the same dimensions for years), and while they are intended to fit snugly in most slides, the same sight may slide through a particular slide or be too tight to start into another. We can't control the slide dimensions, all we can do is keep our sights a constant size. We are not liable for destruction/damage to sights during installation.
Our rear sight for the M&P is precision CNC machined from heat treated 4140 bar stock, and are designed to withstand the rigors of hard duty use. The sight features a U notch for fast alignment with tritium, bead, or fiber optic front sights. The rear face is serrated at 40 lpi to reduce glare in varied lighting conditions. The sight blade is thick enough to allow setting tritium vials as dots or bars if one so chooses, and is contoured and dehorned for comfortable handling and carry. Finished in black salt bath nitrocarburizing, equivalent to the factory finish on the slide, for superior hardness and corrosion resistance.
- FITS: ALL calibers, all sizes of M&P, including Pro and 9L long slides and new 2.0 Compact/Full Size etc.
- Not for S&W M&P .22
The rear sight fits all calibers and all sizes of the M&P series, and is compatible in height with the factory front sight (.160" tall x .140" wide). Rear sight height is identical to the factory sight (.330" total height, .240" net blade height), and will not change point of impact. User installation instructions included. This sight will NOT fit S&W 1911 or "Third Gen" (3913, 5906, etc) series pistols.
**These sights are too wide to correctly fit the Shield. Our Shield sights are discontinued.
***These sights do NOT fit the M&P CORE series pistols.
****The left front of the sight has a small angle machined into it. This is for easier installation, and is not a machining error. We know the S&W Armorer Manual specifies that the sights go in/out from the right, but that is for their factory sights. Ours can go in/out from either side, as shown in our video.
ReviewsJamesThis was a tough little sucker to get on but after getting it in place, it looks great! This is exactly what I wanted after shooting a PPQ with similar rear sights. Thanks 10-8! I'll be back!Michael
M&P rear sightThe M&P rear sight is one of the nicest machined rear sights I’ve seen. It took a very small amount of machining to get the perfect fit but within 10 minutes from start to finish I had it installed. Well done by the team at 10-8!Andrew Mankowski
M&P 2.0 9mm rear sightSuper nice sight. Minor fitting was required. It looks good and works very well with the front fiber optic sight. The u notch makes it easy to acquire target and to shoot accurately. I git the widest notch possible and do not regret it. Highly recommended!!!Sarge
Awesome Rear sightWhen only the best will do, 10-8 comes to mind. The first time and every time. Plus there shipping is on par with Amazon.Vincent Eddings
The best!10-8 Performance sights for my Smith & Wesson M&P 9 M2.0 Compact, are the only sights that work with my astigmatism. The fiber optic front is more durable than others on the market, and the rear sight is everything I could hope for. These are the only sights I use on my handguns.
Great Sight! Install for the M&P version can be trickyI now have these rear sights installed on two guns and they are great. Love the U-notch with fiber optic combination. Really draws the eyes' focus to the front sight. Install of the sight on my Glock went through without a hitch. Install on the M&P was very problematic until I figured out the trick. The instructions say to remove material from the "sides" of the dovetail. In another review, someone suggested taking material off of the bottom of the sight instead. Once I did that, installation was a breeze. Just put the sight in a vise, upside down and gave the bottom a few swipes with a large file. Test fit. Repeat as necessary. Will be ordering more of these sights for other handguns.
Impossible to install. Sight damaged. Slide needs refinish.Really disappointed in this rear sight. I like the blacked out U-nothc rear with fiber front. Recently bought a 10-8 set for a Glock and had no issues installing it. Decided to install a 10-8 set in an M&P 2.0 Compact which is my primary carry gun. Had no problems at all installing the front sight. I've followed all instructions for installing the rear. Filed material off of the dovetail as instructed. Got it slid in about 1/3 of the way by hand and then tried my sight pusher. Sight pusher wouldn't work on this sight. Put the slide in a vice and started using a hammer and brass punch. Got the sight in about 90% of the way and it won't go any further. I've tried using Kroil to get it to move. Tried freezing the slide. I've destroyed 4 brass punches in the meantime trying to get the sight either on or off. Can''t even get the sight off of the gun to put the OEM sight back on. So, now I'm without a primary carry gun until I figure something else out. Again, really disappointed with the installation of this sight. If I could get it installed, it's a great sight. But fit / install is terrible.Brett
Very happyGreat fit and finish. Sight picture is excellent. As stated in the product description, the rear sight needs to be filed down before installation. I used 320 grit sand paper w/ no issues.Darren Willis
Very, Very TightI rate this rear sight as 4 stars (as opposed to 5) only because it is so tight in its fitting. I took my sights to a gunsmith to install and he even marred the finish on the rear sight while installing it. I cannot comment on the skill of the gunsmith as this is the first time I've used his services (might be the last). Otherwise the sigh seems very well made and sturdy. When aiming the gun obviously the marred area is not visible, thus has no impact on performance. I would recommend a competent gunsmith install these sights if you purchase them as they are not easy to fit.Steve Shields
M&P Rear SightI've used 10-8 sights on many 1911's over the years, and have liked the sight alignment and picture it provides. It was a natural choice to go with the 10-8 sight for my M&P, and true to form the alignment and picture are top notch!
