Looks good. The 10-8 is one of my favorite rear sights.

What width notch are y'all using? Are you keeping the stock front sight?

The TRS in the pic has High figured walnut grips from Jon. I was able to pick the wood (I mean the very piece of wood) I wanted.

Proc, those grips are the shizz! Your gun looks almost identical to mine, I deleted the front cocking serrations too.

I was going to change mine out, until I heard the front was secured by a hardened pin and had to be drilled out.

Excellent sight choice! Love the 10-8 line, as well as that classic combo of blue and wood. Beautiful pistol!

I knocked out my front sight last night. Don't drill the pin.

Just smack it good and the pin will shear off flush with the slide. Take your time and protect everything though.

This is at the recommendation of Dawson precision, btw.

Quick update: Took my old front sight out no problem. Started measuring to check numbers on the new sight and found my dovetail is cut .005" deeper than normal in the slide.

This would cause the sight post to bind on installation. Dawson says they can machine a front sight to fit no problem.

Sending it to them, 30 bucks labor for them to do it is worth it.

Gotcha. Did you install regular bushings ? Grips look standard too , not slimline. Mine don't look much like a P11 either , which is what it was born .
