    Probably a Mini 14 or that Kel tec carbine.

    They've gone up: I paid $239 for mine. :p

    Still a bargain. Mini 14s are not cheap these days!

    The CMMG Bargain Bin AR can be had for $600, but you'll need to buy a rear sight.

    I'm also echoing the Saiga. Minis cost around $600 nowadays, with Kel-Tecs around the same range(when you can find them). I'd go for the Saiga if you're going for cheapest. I have one and I'm smitten.

    Another vote for the Saiga. Genuine Russian AK variant, chrome-lined barrel, tough a nails, easy (with the tools and skills ;) ) to convert for a pistol grip, and affordable. I put a 4x inexpensive compact scope on mine and can ring the 300 yd. gong at my range every time.
