I'm not sure what you mean about a 'modern rifle' but if you aren't stuck on the "black gun" look, you might consider a Ruger Ranch Rifle. They go for under $1k. Mini 14 shoots .223, semi automatic, relatively short, and you can have nice wood and stainless steel, or you can get one that is a "takedown", comes in two pieces for easy transport.

Ruger also makes a 'tactical rifle in .223

And Ruger also makes a Mini 30, which is 7.62

The mini's have a relatively short barrel, easy to shoulder, but not so good for 1000 yards, but who wants to walk all the way out there to change a target?

Put 10% of your salary into savings every month no matter how broke you are.
Don't ever screw around with the IRS.
Keep a handgun on your bedside table.
Don't smart-mouth judges, or cops who stop you on the road.
