Another vote for the Tavor. By the time the dust settles and I could actually get my hands on one, I probably will have just learned to live without it.
I would settle for a nice used Marlin 336 in .35 Rem., though. They are priced outrageously here because of a rumor Marlin discontinued them. A junker now runs $450 - quite a feat for a caliber so un-popular Marlin may have canned it. You can't tell me there aren't literally millions of those things in existence, so the price-jacking is just stupid. I've walked away from 3 so far and am adamant that sanity will one day return to the marketplace.
