    Great front sight

    Not easy to install ..required a lot of fitting but managable
    Brett

    Great sights

    Excellent visibility. It's a tight fit but I used a sight pusher and had no installation issues.

    High Visibility

    I am very satisfied with this front fiber optic sight. It is very easy to pick up when you point your gun at the target. You can choose between Red and Green optic colors so you can pick the color you like best.

    Excellent product

    This is the second front sight I have bought. Install is easy and I like the fact that the fiber optic rod is also supported in the middle to cut down on flex of the rod itself. I will be buying another.

    Excellent Front Sight

    I love fiber optic front sights. This was a replacement for the one that was on my pistol. I'm pretty sure I cracked it during the installation, so not the fault of the sight. That said, they could be a little stronger, if I were to give it 5 stars.

    Great design but be careful

    Great design but be careful. I put a set of these sites on to other my pistols and love them . If you are doing it yourself never did it before watch some videos first and take your time. You will need some kind of diamond file as the steel is incredibly hard. Be careful when knocking the site in. My punch slipped and the fiber optic cage crumbled. I had to buy a replacement.

    Excellent

    This is an excellent FO front sight for the M&P. It does take a bit of fitting by using a diamond lap file on the bottom only. I did use a dremel on the rear 10-8 sight as i needed to remove a substantial amount of material before I could use the lap file to finish it up. This took several tries but once I got it about 1/2 into the front dovetail it was stiff but doable fit. I ended up using a screwdrive the same size as the dovetail, wrapped in 3 layers of electrical tape to tap on the bottom section of the sight. Even after getting it to easily slide about 1/2 way, it still took stiff taps to get it centered. The end result of taking my time and using the lap file resulted in no damage to the slide or sight and a really top notch end result.

    Fits M&P Pro 5" 9mm

    Tight fit but no filing necessary. Went in without issue.

    Excellent front sight

    I'm running the .115 wide front with the .140 wide rear and these are my favorite after trying both trijicon and ameriglos. This front sight is really easy to pick up and the narrower width covers less of the target. Top notch products as one would expect from the folks at 10-8 performance.

    Dead Nuts On

    These sights are dead nuts on for my M&P full size 45 auto. What more could one ask for? Top Shelf, buy without hesitation.
