I ended up buying a Burris fulfilled IV E1 4.5-14X42 scope. While not cheap, it wasn't horribly expensive at roughly $215. I figure with a "forever warranty" it would be well worth it. Also a Burris rep did reach out to me to answer some questions, just after I posted here. They seem to be a very good outfit.
The scope does have an side adjustable parallax but is ment for firearms, as it only goes down to 50 yards. I found clarity wasn't a big deal at 20-25 yards as long as the magnification didn't exceed 10 power, but better a 8 power or less. In all reality I rarely exceed 6 power when doing "serious" work (pesting/hunting ) up to 50 yards. I did notice some minor parallax error while shooting, but I was also trying to see how far off I could get it at 25 yards. Glad to say it was roughly .25" at its worst, but could have been the pellets being used or my shooting. This current tin of pellets was consistently loose compared to the last I used up, even though it was the same pellet, just a few years difference in date.
This scope does have an etched glass recticle. It is very fine with drop and windage lines/markings. While looking into shaded woods I found it difficult to see the drop points, but otherwise very clear at 50 yards in sunny areas. The turrets track true with positive clicks, not mushy like many budget scopes I've previously owned. I will say if you have barrel droop issues you will need a compensating mount as the elevation travel isn't as much as other scopes I've had. Not that it was short or limited but the 460 I am testing on does have droop issues. I only shot off 50 or so shots, but no issues with holding zero so far.
All in all I think its a very good scope. Time will tell if any problems arise, but the warranty is very good and not worried about any issues.
Thanks for reading, take it easy.
