A fully functional AR for around $500 is possible. A lot depends on your shipping and dealer costs. Two years ago, I aquired several before giving up my FFL. Some were in the $425 range by doing some careful buying and bundling multiple buys to minimize shipping per piece.
A DelTon upper and PlumCrazy carbon fiber lower is the lowest priced combo w/o shipping but some DPMS uppers are priced pretty low right now.
Magazine and ammo prices are about as good as they're likely to get.
The political situation may raise the prices soon so get on the bus or be prepared to pay more later.
Honestly, you don't have to start with all the bells and whistles on your first rifle. No need to buy a high end gun and find you don't like part or all of the platform.
