If you're willing to jump through some membership hoops, you could go the CMP route.
Personally, I wasn't, so this is where I got mine. They've got two listed, but unfortunately it looks like they're both sold. I'd just keep checking the site, and if they get one for sale, jump on it immediately. The pictures are of the rifle you get.
