You have probably seen the short mag compact models, or the SAKO Burris compact 3x9x32 with the taller covered turrets and coloured rings underneath.
Any or the Timberlines or the short compact models are superb glass and features for HFT although the long eye relief takes a bit of getting used to.

I have a couple of 3x9x40 Fullfield 11's which are also very good, and although they have a better depth of field and much brighter glass than most scopes, the 32mm objective Burris scopes have the edge for HFT, as they have virtually no PX error and brilliant depth. They can see well into darker areas in day time but go dark quick at dusk for hunting.
Dont forget the odd Pentax Light seeker 3x9x32 as they are the same scope as the Burris Compact. I have one and I cannot see any difference to my Sako Burris, apart from the Pentax is not quite s head position fussy.
