Light doesn’t lose much over 9″ from the rear end of a scout/pistol scope vs. a standard scope of 6″ less. After all, the light you are sensing already traveled all the way from your target to your scope. Another few inches won’t matter much.
I second Larrys opinion on scope quality. I’ve recently been spending a lot of time with a 2X Leupold pistol scope, mounted in a scout arrangement, and the light gathering is impressive.
Most of my clients want as much magnification as they can afford. I want as little as I think I can get away with.
