For semi's the Ak is great at around $500, you might find a Ruger
mini 14 beater used for the same.
I would recommend the glock 27 but I doubt you want a .45 cal,
perhaps a 9mm would be a better gun to teach with. So many
good 9mm's out there it's hard to say. taurus are decently priced.
Good luck finding what you need, what part of the country do you

May i ask what age is your daughter? Just out of curiosity, what do believe is a proper age to teach heavy weapon for a daughter? You know, my culture differs a lot to yours, and honestly, i'd teach my child at no age the "skills" you seem to regard as necessary... well, there are differences between people.

Alternatively, as she has received progressing weapons training, consider a smaller caliber caplock (.36-.45) rifle. Don't laugh, as she will have to be very careful to measure powder, patching and setting the ball. I suggest a caplock to increase the reliability from a flintlock. There can be sort of a Zen thing with black powder shooting, not unlike Japanese archery. It teaches discipline and consistency. That one learns to hit the target is almost secondary.

Aside from that another idea is to check with the DCM, or Director Of Civilian Marksmanship. They have a program where You can specify what type of older refurbished military rifle, and it is very very cheap. It is not an over night thing.
Most colleges have shooting clubs on campus, and will even supply the firearms...... Usually they are open sited air rifles, or single shot 22's; both designed around Olympic style competitions.
