Default Red Dot for Victory-will it work???

I have a Picatinny rail on my Victory. Will a red dot optic like a Holosun HS407C fit on the rail?

Thanks!

Clarification. It is a Weaver rail mounted on top of the Victory.

I suggest you take off the rail and replace it with one of these from Tandemkross. SW22(R) Victory™Optic Mount | TANDEMKROSS.

I use one with a Vortex Venom and it works great.

Thanks for the tip. I have something similar that I mount my reflex on. It goes to the end of the barrel with a fiber optic site. I need to find who I got it from.

Picked me up a Holosun HS407C to mount on the Victory.

I mounted that optic on the rail that came with the Victory and it has worked fine so far. This first experience with red dots has really benefitted my old eyes.

I tried one of those sights on my Model 22A-1 for my wife as she has trouble grasping the use of iron sights. The gun shot much worse than with the factory adjustable sights. I could never get it sighted in because it shot all over the place but removing it allowed the gun to return to its old self. And yes, it was installed correctly.

For those olde pharts like me who buy one of those sights to improve their acquisition of the sights and target, I suggest buying glasses that allow you to see both the sights and the target with clarity. Morgan Sports Optical in Olean, New York can fix you right up just as they did for me. They have a website you should visit.
