Bushmaster has a nice M4 style carbine out there too.  If that is the sort of thing you are looking for.  I have a short shotgun with low brass shells for my wife.  It will stop a intruder and it does not kick like a mule when shot.  It is also about $400.00 cheaper then a new AR.  If that is all that you are looking for...

What I would do would be to buy her a Bushmaster post-ban M4 set up. If you could, I'd order it without the fixed tele-stock stock, buy a separate pre-ban tele-stock, and have it permanently fixed at the perfect length for her shooting style.

That way, you get a GREAT AR that's cheaper than a Colt, and it would be pretty much custom fitted for her, and fully legal.
