You can find a few used Ruger Mini's in that range.

hmmmm,anything else?,actually any auto rifle with atleast 20 rounds and sufficient stopping power and reliability works

Knowing you really meant to say semi-auto rifle, how about a Kel Tec SU16? Downside is a non-replaceable barrel.

The Century AR15s were right at $500, but are probably more now. I've read others' posts that they are decently made with surplus parts. Not great, but usable.

Or you could probably build your own AR15.

I bought a Wasr3 a few months ago.I like it a lot straight sights, a little mag wobble. refinished the wood and thats it . Lots of fun for well under 400.00

saiga in 5.56 will cost about $300, and another $100 to convert.

Saiga , or Keltec. I would do the Saiga, as when you convert it, you can then buy as many mags as your heart desires, on the cheap.

If you mean semi-auto, then Saiga or Kel-Tec. The Saiga will be more durable, but the Kel-Tec is more ergo and arguably has a higher "evil-cool" factor.

Pretty much what premium said. Saigas are literally THE AK, maunfactured in russia AK plant. Kel tecs have the cool, modern look.

Anybody know who still has Saiga's in stock? Everybody around here and online seem to be out.

I posed this same question about six months ago and am now a proud owner of a Saiga. 223. Excellent rifle, and affordable (at least for now).

jhansman, if you want information on how to make a pistol grip + stock for it lemme know. i made one out of wood so that i would not have to mess with the actual gun itself. it works great

Thanks, but as soon as I shot it I realized I wanted a PG on it, and so did the classic Saiga conversion. Much happier with the new stock and grip.
