I don't think anyone's mentioned the Kaweco Liliput. But it's such a fiddly screw post that I hardly ever use mine.

The Pineider La Grande Bellezza has a magnetic cap that works with the cap posted, too. I post my Kaweco pocket pens but that's about it. I don't like the extra weight up there. But anyway the Pineider is designed to post properly and does.

Waterman 452 1/2V
A scant 92 mm long capped, it extends to a very comfortable 127 mm posted, and the cap is stable even though the posting length (fluted for grip) is only 7.5 mm long.
Great pen. Silver, 1925, one of my top tier pens and one of only a few I post, from necessity alone.

I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

Much like the Parker 51, the Parker VS posts very well.
Baptiste knew how to make a short job long
For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

The Montblanc Mozart posts (it screws on) and is an absolutely delightful weight and balance (for me). I also quite like the Kaweco lilliput, which posts using a screw top as well. I like to use the lilliput when I'm in a meadow identifying wildflowers or writing on a bench. It fits perfectly in my pockets with my keys.
Other than that, the only pens I use posted are aforementioned the Sailor Pro gear slim and 1911S, the 3776 and the Pelikan 400 and the 600, all of which are perfect posted or unposted.

If a pen doesn't post well and feel "right" to me when posted, I won't use it much, an obvious exception being the Pilot Capless Decimo (and their other retractables).
But one "meant to post" pen that I don't see above is the Montblanc Noblesse Oblige, which has a nice snap post design.

In truth, I don't post much. Even my Pilot Prera doesn't get posted much, and it's really rather small. But the following pens all post well, and have not been previously mentioned.
FPR Jaipur v1 (only in vegetal resin) push post.
FPR Darjeeling, push post
MontBlanc 72, push post
Noodler's Konrad, push post (if you can find one that doesn't dry out)
Sheaffer Viewpoint, push post (this is the horrible "update" to the NNP Sheaffer uses for their calligraphy sets, with a friction fit cap, a rubber section cover, and HUGE, GARGANTUAN barrel cutouts to make the cartridge ink supply visible)
These might not meet the OP's requirements.
Pilot Prera -- a push poster. You have to push enough for the soft, flexible inner cap to engage the barrel finial for it to post securely.
Parker Vector, push post (though I think that makes it too long)
The Platinum Plaisir posts well, but it does have a large and obtrusive cap band, which has never bothered me.
Waterman Phileas, push post (it has a thick cap lip that has never bothered me)

I think the Pilot Prera's one of the best posting pens. It's basically made for it.
It caps and posts very easily so it requires little effort, but stays well, making it a quick pen to post and cap.
And the balance is superb when posted without any threads in the way of gripping.
My only problem with the Prera is that it's not comfortable unposted.
