That's easy: Get an AR15 "Lower" (about $185). Here's why:
1. There's a (hidden)federal tax on firearms and works much like a VAT. By
federal law, the "lower" is considered the firearm itself - it's the part
with the serial number. So, you pay the 7.5% tax on only the smallest part.
You can then finish out the weapon with non-taxable parts. If, however, you
buy a complete weapon, you'll pay the tax on an $1800 rifle.
2. With only the "lower," you can mix and match the remaining parts - top
quality, low quality, domestic, foreign, cast, milled, steel, magnesium
alloy, whatever, various options (like folding stock, collapsing stock,
etc.) at your leisure.
I suspect, if the new administration does anything, they'll ban
high-capacity magazines first because it's easier to define what constitutes
a high-capacity magazine. So, I'd put those high on my list.
