What about an ISR4451?  Rock-solid, have 10x the throughput you need, they just don’t do 10G interfaces.  And way cheaper than any of the other options you’ve discussed.  It seems like it might be “good enough for long enough” and then you could recycle it in some other use when it comes time for an upgrade (and when there’s something palatable to upgrade to, like perhaps the ASR9901 that was mentioned yesterday).
