I don't think that the weight is just due to rotary valves. I have a Cerveny BBb with 4 rotary valves and it is relatively light, much lighter than a King 2341 or VMI 3301. I think that Meinl-Weston uses relatively thick metal and solid bracing (both a good thing) that add to the weight.
Congrats on finding the right horn for you. Enjoy it.
