    Dovetails have two parts, the tail and the slot it fits into. The slot has to be fanned out to accommodate the dovetail that fits inside.

    And terminologically, whether or not the slot is a strict "dove tail", that's what that part of the riser/limb fitting is called...

    The problem with things like this is we don't know who is sending the right information.
    Who determines what is the correct terminology? Even the idea of what's in common use, breaks down in some regions.
    Perhaps we need an archery dictionary.
    I remember changing my Berger button for a nice new pressure button. Sounded much more "professional"..... worked better ,too!!

    Ok so there are in fact two dovetails at each end of the riser, the limb pocket and limb that that fit together form one, keeping the U slot in the limb clear of the limb bolt (as Rik said in an earlier post) which the revolution does not have and the slot at the bottom of the limb pocket.
    just point,pull & click the mouse button

    This may be the gap. There is only one dovetail slot on each riser pocket: the one which the revolution also has. The limb has a u shaped notch which fits around the bolt on the riser. The limb also has the dovetail fitting (round with a flaring "dovetail" end) which goes into the slot on the riser. The slot on the riser pocket narrows towards the surface to accept it. This, collectively, is the bit referred to as the dovetail. Strictly it's the bit on the limb that fits into the slot. All "ILF" limbs have them.

    A picture may help, this is how the dove tail fitting looks out of the limb:

    and a diagram of how it all fits:
