The King Arms full metal M4 is sort of the go-to suggestion here for starter guns. They work well enough out of the box (there are some worthwhile fixes though if you're willing to open it), but more importantly have plenty of upgrade potential. A lot of people (myself included) have bought them as project guns. With a $500 budget you'd be able to get the gun (270-300) and put some nice stuff in/on it.
M4s are also far more common, so if you're out of ammo you have a far better chance of being able to borrow mags.
Also, make sure you're budgeting for gear too. Running around with 6 mags in your pockets won't be fun.
