Ok - let's get real here. THIS is a great rifle for self defense! An AR is good. This is better. 308 Win. baby. AR Pistol? Meh! This collapses to a compact package. It's over before it started. This eats ANY 308/7.62 NATO ammo!!

HOWEVER - these are banned in Maryland unless you happen to have got one in 2013.

I love that my LGS(6 miles from my house) has all these delicious flavors available. Up in PA.

I like these old school battle rifles.

Mini -G /308 --- Great fireball

SOCOM 16 /308 --- Very loud

I do like the Garand, and I'd like to try an FAL. Realistically, all the older platforms are out of support. You're relying on dwingling stocks of most parts. Even finding fresh magazines can be a hassle. Magpul makes mags for the AR-10, and all the other parts are easy enough to find.

If you're really broke, an SKS will work. I'd stock up on stripper clips and whatever small parts might break. (Springs, firing pin, etc.)
DSA is making new FALs and all new parts for them. They started out rough, but they are using the original FN tooling and drawings. They get bashed by the purists, but South Africa, Israel, Mexico, and even the Chicago Police have contracted them for new rifles. I've gotten Compliant Parts from them. Magazines are common.
Everything M1a/M14 is available too. New Bolts, oprods, and mags are available from companies that supplied US Gov. Smith Enterprises may not be the prettiest, but they built entire semi auto M-14s for Gov contracts.
Neither can be had in Maryland in 308 or 7.62. 6.5 can be.
They may not be the best option for everyone though. But that is true of anything.
