I have about a $1000 to spend on a riflescope. The one i currently own is a Bushnell Elite 4200 4-16x50. I like it but i am looking to extend my shooting time in low light conditions. Some scopes i have been considering are the Meopta Meostar 3-12x56, Zeiss Conquest mc 3-12x56,Trijicon Auccupoint 2-10x56 and the Minox z5i 3-12x56. I know these are big heavy scopes but im trying to get as much light transmission as possible.

Probably Meostar 3-12x56.
 
For $1k, this the best low light scope I can think of.

Two years ago my scope parameters were essentially the same as yours. I took Koskin's, Kick Boxer's and the advice of several knowledgeable others on this forum and purchased the Meopta Meostar 3X-12X-56MM illuminated German #4, second focal plane scope. From everything I can gather, after following this and a half dozen other forums for some 5 years now, I'm convinced I bought the best low light scope available in the 1K price range. Granted, there are better ones out there in the "alpha" category and I will no doubt look at a couple of these at some point ( they also come with much saltier price tags). However, for my current situation, hunting from shoot houses overlooking green fields, the big Meo will reach out and touch them when the light is all but gone here in the deep south.
