Let me first say, thank you in advance for all of your help.

I've searched and searched and haven't found what I'm looking for. I'm not sure that it exists. So, I thought I would ask for help.

Here is my wish list:
prefer small, light with a 32mm objective or at least close to that
mil-dot or equivalent
turrets to match the reticle / if mil-dot then mil or of MOA then MOA
side parallax adjustment to 10 yards
close to 10x magnification or more

I'm getting a new airgun (Millennium Pumper) and would like a new scope to match. Even though it's going to be a hunting airgun, I prefer more magnification than most people. None of my scopes ever drop below 10X. With that said, I would prefer to keep it as small and light as possible.

If it's the right scope, I don't mind spending money on it. However, I would prefer to keep it under $700. 

The only scope I am aware of that comes close is one of the Nightforce models but it doesn't focus close enough.

I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for your help.

Matt

It sounds like you wrote the description of the SS 10X other than it has a 42mm objective.

The rear focus is $100 less and I find it to be more user friendly to boot.

Those are the closest I've seen too. I was looking at the SWFA SS 10X42 and the SWFA SS 3-15x42. My only concern was size and weight. I would love to have something like one of those that is smaller and lighter. I understand why they are built the way they are but I'm only going to be hunting small things that won't kill me so I don't really need them overbuilt. 

Unless there are better options, that is probably what I will end up with.

Thanks,
Matt

I overlooked the Vortex. The only thing, it's minimum parallax setting is 35 yards. I emailed Vortex to see if that could be adjusted.

Thanks,
Matt
