In general, a nice fixed stock rifle ($800) with good mount and scope ($300) is going to run you around $1100. I'd either get a DSA StG58 or do the research on falfiles.com and buy the parts and have a smith build it to your specs; or find an outstanding deal on an already built kit rifle and maybe save $100.

Another option, and IMO the "entry level" into FAL ownership (it was for me) is buying a used Century L1A1 rifle built on an Imbel metric receiver for around $400-$500. You can always upgrade the furniture, have a proper muzzle device installed, add scope, refinish, etc..; Century FrankenFALs are usually ugly but functional.
