    The kel-tec su-16 might be good for you except I think its a little over $400.

    I would recommend the mini-14 but I don't know if they're CA legal and they cost a good bit more than your requirements.

    Why?

    As in, do you want to use it for target shooting/hunting/plinking/as a door stop?

    Up the budget by $100-$150 or do away with the detachable magazine and you've got some options. E.g. Ruger has a 9mm carbine, Kel-tec has the SU-16, and so on. Or without the detachable magazine you can go with an SKS for $150-200. I'd go with the stripper clips myself.....

    For NIB your best choices are Keltec Su-16 and Ruger Mini-14 but either one is gonna cost you a little bit more then $400. You might get lucky shopping for a used rifle, however.

    Although an SKS with a detachable magazine is not legal in California (can't even have one grandfathered), you can have one with a fixed ten-round magazine. You can get a surplus one for less than $200 last I checked, so that is another option.

    If you have a Turner's Outdoorsman near you, sometimes they have all three choices in the store at the same time so you can check each of them out, as well as prices.

    Honestly your requirements are too stringent if you want a brand new rifle. The chances of you finding a new semi-auto for under $400 is very low. As others have said the SU-16 and Mini-14 would be good choices, but both will exceed your $400 price range if you want them new. You should also look at a PC9, PC40, or a M1 Carbine as well. Here is a list of most of the California legal semi-auto centerfire rifles. I might be missing a few, but you should look at these and see what tickles your fancy.

    -Off-list AR-15 (configured with either a fixed magazine, or without a pistol grip and flash suppressor.)
    -Off-list AK (configured with either a fixed magazine, or without a pistol grip and flash suppressor.)
    -Mini-14/30
    -SU-16 A,B,CA
    -Beretta RX4 (Should be available to civilians in late 2007)
    -Ruger PC9/40
    -Ruger Deerfield
    -Marlan Camp 9/45
    -M1 Garand
    -M1 Carbine
    -M1A
    -M1941 Johnson
    -HK SL6
    -HK SL7
    -SKS
    -Volquartsen Evolution
    -Modified FAL
    -Rasheed
    -Hakim
    -FN49
    -VZ-52/57
    -SVT
    -MAS49
    -Ljungman
    -BAR
    -Benelli R1
    -Remington 7400
    -1919
    -Vickers
    -M-31 Suomi
    -PPSH-41(This one and the Suomi might not be long enough for California if you get the versions from Military Gun Supply)
