OK guys...  I need to pick your brains.
I will be picking up a GEN 3 night vision sight of some type this spring.  I have it narrowed down to either:
1. D740 dedicated sight.  ($4400.00)
2. PVS-14 with EOTech and 3x day time magnifier, NV magnifier, mounts...  ($5250.00)
3. PVS-14 behind a day scope.  ($3500.00 + scope)
#3 is the least expensive route (depending on day scope cost), however I am not sure which one to get!
I am looking for a 30mm tube scope with at least a 50mm objective, side focus and 4 to 5 inches of eye relief.  Power range should be no more then say a 2.5 - 10.  The only other concern is that the lens coating on the scope can not filter out IR.  I'll be using an IR illuminator on the dark nights.  Illuminated reticle is not a concern unless specifically designed for night vision.  It must have really nice glass (no crap please), and I will not be turning knobs for distance.
This is going on an AR15 with extended mounting rails and a collapsable stock.  I have hopes that keeping the eye relief at 4 - 5 inches will be a close enough match to the PVS-14 length of 4.5 inches.  This should reduce the issue of moving back and forth along the stock.  I would collapse the stock a notch or two during day use, and then extend it out for night hunts.
