    I've seen a few import PSLs with a scope and four factory-fitted magazines for around $800. These are only available for a limited time due to government trying to close the import doors, but the rifle is very accurate and reliable and adding the scope creates a package that is worth the money.

    See GunBroker.com and GunsAmerica.com for a starting place. Armslist may have a few private sellers who thought the round was too hot or punishing.

    Only ones I know of are semi auto rpk, svd sniper, psl/fpk designated marksmen rifle, svt40. None are under 800. Two are north of 2000$.

    Better option might be a m1 garand 30-06 is pretty much identical to the x54r but with a better selection of bullets.

    Svt 40 300 $ in canada good gun pain to clean but shoot straight semi auto power is in between 3030. And 3006 recoil is very mild really loud to shoot and long hand loading is problem due to scallops in chamber

    Unfortunately, you will not find an SVT-40 in the US for that price. Or twice that price.

    You might find a used mini 30 for that price.

    SKS. You said under $500. Would rather have an old SKS than a used Mini 30 any day
