Hello i am new here but i do have a question as reguards to the rules for the dmr platform, so in the rules it gives examples of some gun types for dmrs and of course semi locked and all the other regulations. Here is my question as i was reading another post it says m4s can not be used as dmrs per the rules being it has to have the weapon in its real world counterpart, well the m4 has a real world dmr the spr mk12 which is a dmr styled weapon that shoots the standard 5.56 nato. Also per rules it says no carbines sense the mk12 isnt a carbine does this count as a dmr if all other regulations are met. Asking for my own peace of mind

M4 is easily identifiable with collapsible stock, FSP, and carbine length gas system.  It can be fired in semi or burst/auto.

Mk12 is easily identifiable with its longer 18" bull barrel, full length gas system, and is semi only.  Some have collapsible stocks.

Think of it this way: the visual cues are so you don't run up on a guy with a DMR because of minimum engagement distance.  Mk12 hardly looks like an M4 from distance, though to be fair with all the modularity it's hard to tell what anything is now.

MK12 is fine as it meets all required rules.


My job is to clarify and enforce policy, not to make policy.
