    J&G sales has a decent sized line of Romanian AK's for anywhere from $490 to $600. As far as I can tell they're all in stock.

    Assault rifle? You want a machine gun? No problem if you have a class III ticket.

    Please don't call semi-automatic rifles, assault rifles, That is exactly what the anti-gunners call them. Assault rifles have a full auto select switch.

    Just remember if you purchase a SKS and change to Tapco or other tactical stocks, you have to have a total of 6 U.S. parts to comply with 922r law same deal if you change anything on a Siaga, or any imported AK, FAL, etc rifle.

    This is exactly what I thought of when I read the OP. I'm surprised there have been so many replies and noone said anything about it.

    Big deal. If you think about it the rifle could be used in an assault. Almost any rifle could, but the kind of rifle the OP wants to buy is designed to be used in an assault.

    Just because the media has no idea what they're talking about doesn't mean we have to "kitty" foot around and not call something what it is.

    Assault rifles are legal under the 2nd Amendment. If I was in a militia, and I was training to fight against other men, I would want an assault rifle.

    As for getting a reliable one for under $500 - I don't think its going to happen. A Garand from the CMP will get you there - but you'll still need ammo.

    So an M1 grand is more reliable than an AK47?

    Even when AIM Surplus had WASRs they were for $550. I think an AK is reliable but when you add in mags at $15 a pop you're already at $700 if you get 10 of them, which would be a reasonable amount. The typical AK right now is going for $700+

    I got my Saiga for less than $500... and even though they use different mags, the number of things to be modified (legally done) with the pricer/quality ratio is the best IMHO... tons of info online.

    I never seen a used M1grand go lower than probably $800 or so, I want to build one myself but it sure aint as inexpensive as an AK.

    $495 (+shipping) for an M1 Garand through the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). An M1 is reliable with the military ammo (or any ammo using an adjustable gas device). The ammo available through the CMP (30-06) is currently cheaper than .223, and comes on the en bloc clips. Of course they are running several months behind answering the mailed in orders.

    An AK 47 style weapon is generally more reliable than almost anything else, and generally less accurate.

    The Garand is a fine piece of history, and in it's time it was an excellent weapon platform, and a great tool in the hands of the allies. However, time has moved on.

    The exception to this is that if you live in a state where a large amount of the more modern weaponry is banned. Or the implements that make them more desireable such as magazines over 10 rounds.

    If this is going to be your only rifle for defense, I would suggest looking at towards some of the other listed options out there.

    that's why I opted for a PTR-91 combine the reliability of an AK with the accuracy of an AR only problem is you are looking at about $1200 for a new one may be able to find an old one, prior to JLD being bought out by PTR-91, for less

    best of luck with choosing a riffle the SKS is a fine suggestion that has been made here :D

    Gotta stop posting late at night - I didn't mean to suggest the Garand is an assault style weapon, just that you can get one and ammo for a lot less than 8 bills.
