Well thats not going to happen so maybe the S&W M&P15
For the price it might be better than a Ruger 10/22... you can add a new stock to a 10/22, add rails and a bull barrel, compensator (as if) and extended mags, but your end price will be well over the $500 of the S&W. From what I've seen, the S&W is a reliable feeder. A lot of 22 semiauto carbines have feeding problems.
If you like bullpups, the 10/22 with a dixie consolidated bullpup conversion is the only way to go. I've been salivating over one of those for a while now. J Bunting Machine makes a better one but it's three times the cost and it has a waiting list.
