I recently purchased a couple of 9mm scopes and want to put a really high quality, low power scope on them. I want it to be illuminated, I want it to be less than 10 oz
and I want it to have at least 3x magnification and 1-1.5 on the minimum end. the trouble is, i cant find one. i can sacrifice the illumination, but I really want top quality glass.
the only things I have found so far that come close are 1" tube scopes, these are the three that I am looking at;
weaver classic v 1-3x 20mm
leupold mark 4 1.5-5x 20mm
leupold vx3 1.5-5x 20mm

those are the only 3 that i am even considering, and even then they are no where near what I want.
I am hoping for some insight and suggestions on other possibilities. Of the 3 I am leaning towards the mark 4 but I am curious if the mark 4 is really any better than the vx3?
how does the weaver compare?

why is there such a gap in the scope market here? I understand illumination adds weight to the scope, but there is almost no decent offering at all even without the illumination in a 1" tube.
SHould I just give in and go for a 30mm? these are the 30mm ones that intrigue me;

vortex razor hd gn2 1-6x 24mm
swarovski z6 or z6i 1-6x 24mm
Schmidt and bender zenith 1.1-4x 24mm flash dot

how do those three compare to each other; duribility wise, repeatability, click value acuraccy, optical clearity/low light?
I am open to other suggestions, but I want a top tear scope. I am tired of messing around in the mid range of quality optics.

my plan is to have this in a high quality QD mount and use it on more than one rifle. so it needs to be able to withstand heavy recoil because i intend to use it on a dangerous game rifle someday as well.
 (looking at a 458 lott to take to Africa and/or Alaska some day)

thanks for any and all replies, and please feel free to suggest. glad to finally have joined the forum

just realized, I posted that I purchased a couple 9mm scopes , I meant I purchased a couple of 9mm rifles. sorry for the confusion.

I'd choose this over the ones you listed personally.  A 9mm has limited range and use in a rifle, this will do all you'll ever want it to.
