Yes, the SAR-3 was and the Chinese also made one.

Saiga .223. It's a Russian made 5.56. Do a conversion on it and it will still cost less than $350.

Very nice SAM5 and VEPR models in the $600 range.
Saiga 5.56 about $220 wholesale, Russian metalwork, hunter style. Some good pistol grip conversion info in the Russian forum.

Anything else gets more rare and pricy. [Seinfeld]Not that there is anything at all wrong with a Galil.

Take that $220 - $230 Saiga, add an RPBUSA trigger group ($30), KVAR buttstock and pistol grip ($50), pistol grip nut and bolt, and you've got a good .223 rifle for less than $340.
