Recently purchased two Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite’s to be used as silencer host guns.

Additionally I purchased one Volquartsen LLV-4 Mini barrel (receiver).

Wow! The LLV-4 Mini really feels nicely balanced with Dead Air Mask.
The Mini, gives me about 2.75” of picattiny rail between front and rear site.
Think that I will be purchasing I have purchased the additional parts to make one pistol into the Mini Mamba with gold trigger and gold bolt.
Update:
15% off on gun parts on Optics Planet.
So now I am headed full steam to a BBQ gun with silencer, but needs an optic.

I am optics illiterate, so your advice would help.

What red dot would be your choice for these 22LR’s?

If it were me I go with one of the Vortex or Holosun reflex sights.

On a separate note, make sure to keep the forward barrel retainer tight on the Lite. Mine used to come loose all the time, so much so that I finally dumped it as it was affecting accuracy.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

I have a Vortex Venom on mine and it works well. No silencer on mine though.

I, too, put a Venom on mine with suppressor.

I've got a Holosun and a suppressor on mine. They work great together, much like a Reese's peanut butter cup, only shooting suppressed .22 lr.

My Ruger wears a C More sight. It is kind of my comp 22 so maybe you want smaller. The CMore does kind of work nice on these 22's though.

If you have any astigmatism go with the Holosun 407 or 507!

I put an MRO on mine with a mask. I don't do holosun for the obvious reason.
Works great.

I have a Venom on my Black Mamba; the suppressor stamp should be coming in any day now…

Would love to hear your 25 yard accuracy results with the mini-Mamba upper! Mine was 'ok' at about 2-2.5" (5-shot groups) but the Ruger Target upper I also bought from them (for $40!) was a 1" @ 25 yard shooter (!). Subsequently I sent my LLV-4 back to VQ and they actually replaced the barrel so I'm awaiting another range trip. What a great company they are! And I'm definitely going with the Holosun 407...good price and (thanks to their emitter) I can see it w/o starbursts!

Good luck!
