Rugers are probably my favorite cheap rifle. Anywhere from the 10/22 to the Mini 14 to the American

Mini-14's aren't cheap anymore

Have an AXIS II in .308 --less than $300 for stainless at Walmart----that has been a decent gun---haven't shot it in a while though.

My favorite is a Swiss Army Surplus , 1911K , 7.5 Swiss , Schmidt-Ruben
It has a Straight Pull action , very accurate with a longer action than the 1930 model which is great for longer heavier bullets and better for cast bullet shooting .
Mid 1960's it sold for $19.99 from local Army-Navy Surplus Store ...
they had them in wooden barrels and no one wanted the strange push-ma-pull-ya action or 7.5 Swiss ammo it shot ... for instance , the 30-06 , 1903-A3 Springfield rifles went for $60.00 ... those sold like hot cakes at IHOP ... the Schmidt-Rubens just sat there !
We were in high school and me and 3 others bought them ... fun to shoot and extremely accurate . I still have one I sporterized with a Herter's Walnut sporting stock like you did in the 60's ...when you wanted a deer rifle but had no money !

My vote goes to the Hi-Point carbines...cheap, yet functional.
