Yes once your AV you can get a full metal 416. $500 sounds like a good place to aim for. Some could be more, some could be less. Only way to know is to get AV. No it does not cost anything for the AV process but it will cost you thousands in the long run with airsoft purchases, as the airsoft addiction makes heroin look like childrens tylenol. Those retailers you mentioned don't sell non-clear guns, but there are a couple in the AV section of retailers that do sell full black, full metal guns at a higher premium of course.
My trust is in whiskey, in weed and in Slayer, its GODDAMN ELECTRIC
