Maybe. It would be a tight squeeze but you might be able to fit a Revolution in there and have it clear the windage knobs on that scope.
It just raises the question: why didn't they put proper offset rails on the body of the gun in the first place?
The AGD Tac-One, some tactical Ion bodies, and even the old Brass Eagle Rainmaker did this with great results.

Probably because the person who did this doesnt have Occluded sights or doesn't know how they work. It would have been better to use the occluded sight because you can get you eye up to this sight while wearing a mask

i would kinda prefer to have the sight on the right side, since i usally tilt in the marker that way... but only if there wasnt a stock..
This is one option of using a red dot with a stock..

As-is, even if you use an offset sight rail adapter the sight is going to be elevated so high and then turned at a 45* angle that you run into clearance issues with the back of the loader.
If they had just put the rear sight rails at a 45* angle on the body itself in the first place there would be no clearance issues with most sights and people wouldn't have to use an adapter.

Top one in the pic
Its the Occluded sight and doesn't require you to put you eye right up against it. Probably the best option for these purposes seeing as we have to wear our goggles to play.

They function fine, and I use OEGs on my pumps, but a true dot sight that you can actually look through is almost always better.
If they had given this body offset sight rails, mounting proper sights like this, or OEGs, would be much easier.
Beyond that, there's the clearance issue. With today's low-profile feednecks and loader shapes, putting the sight rail on top of the gun means that most sights will not be able to squeeze into the space between the loader and the rail. This is true of both OEGs and dot sights.
Again, moving the rail *45 to the side eliminates this problem.

Actually, I'd probably buy it no matter what lol. I still think it looks sick.

Where are you supposed to put the hopper?
Seeing as how the Etha seems heavily based on the Automag with Level 10, maybe they'll now release a new Warp?
I'd use something like this with it:
It might solve the foolish "rail behind the hopper," too.
