For accuracy I would think the AR style in .308 would be the most accurate. Design wise I love the M1A and the FN FAL type rifles. If I was in the market for one it would be either a M1A or FAL. I wouldnt be buying it expecting sub moa groups. Just a cool rifle to shoot and have. I have other guns for the moa stuff.

This is true, but they're definitely around. Handled one at a gun show just a couple of weeks ago.

You may find a person looking to quickly sell an M1A but in your price range you have limited options. I would suggest looking for a used PR-91 or new Saiga.
