    Not completely true. In real steel the EOTECH 553 will not fit on the 416.

    Ok but this is not the real steel discussion thread so that does not apply

    More to the point, there are a lot of red dots made for bb guns that won't fit on a 20mm rail. They're designed for the narrower (11mm?) rail that crappy bb guns and pellet guns use and will not fit on a weaver/picatinny rail.

    but we arent talking about BB guns either we are talking about airsoft guns on an airsoft forum in the general airsoft accessories section. So if he just went on any airsoft website or went to any airsoft retailer and bought any red dot that they sold not labeled for a bb gun or real firearm then he would be fine.

    Yes, if he limited his shopping to airsoft stores only. Anybody who does that is kind of foolish. A lot of what we use has applications outside of airsoft, like optics, but also camping propane, R/C shock oil, R/C battery packs, real gear like camo, slings, boots, and any number of other things. If, in his search for optics, Ryan ends up at www.cheaperthandirt.com or www.opticsplanet.com, he might find some non-standard mount red dots. They exist and they're out there, and Ryan should be aware of their existence because if he ventures outside of the very small world of airsoft websites (and he should), he could run across them.
