Not an AR-related question, but generic enough that anyone with some optics mount knowledge should be able to help.

I put a SightMark RDO on my S&W Model 22S.  The RDO manual says it
fits 'Standard dovetail mounts' and the Model 22S manual says it comes
with a 'Weaver-Style' mount rail.

Look at the pics below and tell me if it can be used in this configuration.

The RDO is level, and tight, but the tilt in that clamp is bothersome.

That doesn't look right. I would try flipping that clamp 180 degrees and see if that works.

I don't have access to it right now, but I think the mount is integral to the RDO.

Should a 'dovetail' mount work with a 'Weaver' rail?  That - to me - seems like what the mismatch is.
