Default .308 rifle for $1000

I'm looking for a .308 autoloader for deer hunting and SHTF. Don't know much about them but I'd like to keep the rifle in the 1k range. Thoughts?

For a 1000$ you should be able to find a decent FAL. To fill both roles id probably look at one of these. Or a .308 AK is in that price range as well.

Who makes FAL rifles?

I see DSA arms but they are more in the $1500 range. I'd prefer the AR-10 platform just from a maintenance standpoint.

Look at the DPMS LAR 308. A good AR type. Accuyrate, reliable and rugged.

What about the FN FNAR? That is right in my price range.

I'd get the fluted barrel for sure. If you can find it for 1k you have a pretty good rifle for the money.

You put hunting first so Browning BAR. Should be available at $1k.
