    Ill give a second vote for the Mini 14 or 30. I myself am not a huge fan of the Ruger Mini. 3.5" grps doesn’t excite me.

    $500 limit is tough, for a semi-auto. Unless ya can get him to buy an A.K.

    Thanks guys, I took all your suggestions and made a "strict" list and then a "I really think you should go this way instead but do what you want" list.

    The Rem 7615 may be the ticket even though it doesn't strictly mesh with what he asked for. I personally think it's a great idea for a rifle, and although the model with the collapsible stock looks like crap to me, I think it's right up his alley. He doesn't mind the pump action shotgun after all.

    I will send him some URLs for the various pistol caliber carbines. I suspect he may like that idea too... too bad they don't make one that'll take XD mags!

    I told him his reqs. were just too tough for the most part, and even if his budget was higher they're still tough because what he's looking for is a military format rifle if he wants evil and black. A self loading magazine fed rifle in a good centerfire caliber, even if it's just for fun, just costs money.

    Does it have to be new? A used BAR might fit his criteria, if you got a good deal on one maybe...or one of the Century CETME's perhaps?

    CETMEs have been gone for a while. Touching them and finding a good one under $500 is getting hard.
    Driver carries less than $45 worth of remorse.

    I was thinking a mini-14 for him as well, but I'm more partial to AR's myself
