For $1000 you can get a Colt 6920 - essentially their "Law Enforcement" edition. Similar to what the Military M4 runs. Usually around $950 online, $1050 in shops. Some Walmarts are also reportedly carrying them.

Good brands?
Colt, Novoske, BCM, LMT.
Middle road brands? (probably still good enough)
Rock River Arms, Stag, Smith & Wesson, PSA (only b/c they're new)
Not so well thought of brands?
DPMS, some of the Bushmaster models (some are OK).

You might be able to go cheap by buying a used upper (the part that goes bang) and a cheap lower, or building one yourself (that's the part w/ the trigger and buttstock).

Go to Ar15.com and m4carbine.net and do some reading. Make sure you read the stickies in the sections you're interested in. Then set aside at least $400 for a case of ammo and 5 mags.

I shot 800 rounds of Tula this past weekend without a single problem. You might want to check your extractor. Although it's not my first choice of ammo but it is cheap for plinking out to 100 yards or so. It is inconsistent sometimes.

I have had problems with tula. I think it is underpower in its loading. I mainly shoot wolf wpa, silver bear, brown bear, anything made at the barnaul plant.
