I was just messing around with my sniper parts, and decided I'd see what my M4 looks like with a 290mm silencer, bi-pod and a 3-9x40 scope. It looks somewhat odd..
I thought, if I used a Vietnam style magazine (as they're shorter), and maybe lose the crane stock and add an M16 stock, it'd start to look more like a semi-auto sniper rifle.

Basically, I was just wondering on what you would define as a DMR, and what you would define as an AEG with a longer barrel, scope and bit more power?
Could an M4-CQB become a DMR with just the addition of a couple of attachments?

A DMR is esentually an accurised assault rifle.
What you put on it is up to you, for example I use an acog. I'd say semi only is a must, length doesn't matter much to me, watch Gary Gordon in bhd for example.

So, if I put a slightly longer tight bore in my M4, upgraded the internals so it shoots about 380-400 fps, put a scope on it, limited it to semi/safe only. You would class it as a DMR?

Yeah that'd pass in my books, how you set up your rifle is quite a personal decision on how to get it 'just right'. Unfortunately my local site limits me to 350, other wise is have mine at 420

Only 350? What about spring snipers?

My local sites have 345 for AEG and 500 for sniper/DMR (woodland) and 400 (urban).
I like the sniping role, but my L96 is too powerful for urban, and I want a semi-auto 'cause it seems to match better :L

Now to plan to upgrade the internals..
I know barrel, hop up and spring.. but which makes and anything else?
It shoots 330 now, so if I upgraded spring to 400, would I need new anything else to handle it?

There is a thread on the interent that shows you how to make a DMR not just an M4 with sniper style stuff stuck on it, it looks at internals optimisations and the likes when I find it ill pop it in here for you.

I have an ICS L85 set up as a DMR. It has a tightbore, ACOG, is coverted to semi only, has a Guarder SP140 on the lowest spring setting and was last chrono'd at 436fps (the site has a 450 limit for semi AEG's).

Range and accuracy is impressive and with patience, i.e. sitting still in a bush for periods of time, you can get a lot of one shot kills. You shouldn't be detected particularly if you use dark coloured BB's (except I giggle a lot at my sneakiness which can give my position away) :P

I'd say it's not really the look of the gun as much as the performance which defines it (except it has to be a rifle, no SMGs obviously). IMO DMR = sniper hunter. If you can't go up against snipers with it, it's not a DMR!

If the gun falls just short of the minimum DMR standard, I'd be tempted to call it a battle rifle; although I'm aware this doesn't fit in with the actual definition of battle rifle, it seems to fit.

And hey, if the M4-CQB's heavily upgraded enough that it's got the performance, then I guess it'd have to be a DMR.
