what is your definition of cheap?
Kel Tec makes < $700 rifles.

never fired one, so can't comment on quality, etc.
Also, I'm not sure if they are 223 or 556. i'd assume 5.56 (does anyone make just .223 anymore?)

If I remember right, 5.56 rounds are capable of putting out higher pressure than .223 rounds (same sizes, different pressure specs).

You just made me realize i need to change the heading to 5.56 and .223. Thanks

My definition of cheap is around $300-$500

You might have to go to a bolt-action for that price, but who wants a .223 bolt? So, try gunbroker, or look for someone selling a used rifle. I got the Ruger Mini-14 Tactical I have (new) for $695, which is $200 under MSRP, and it's one of the lowest priced .223s. The Ranch model is a little lower too, so maybe about $650. If you are willing to pay that price or something close to it, contact Mike @ Mid-County Gunshop on the Eastern Shore. He might make you a deal if he still has them in stock. Info is in the Dealer Connection forum.

If you're open to the suggestion of a single shot, you can get below $300 with an H&R


H&R's warranty work is performed by Remington.

you might be able to afford an upper, or a lower with lpk and stock, but not a whole rifle for that price.

Saiga .223... You can still find them for around $400-450 if you shop
