building a DMR

I don't know if this is enough to make a DMR or not, but I have a 440 dollar budget. I like M4/m16/m4 varriant, and I wasn't sure what base/platform gun I should get, and how much one should pay on one. Also could you type out a list of internal upgrades to buy for the gun within my budget? Is it possible to get a gun in this price range to make a dmr and have the gun have solid externals,(won't break, no wobbles, etc,)? Thanks ahead of time guys I appreciate the help.

Personally I think that that no matter what you do you will spend more money on your DMR then what you plan on. My DMR started out as a CA M16A4. As of right now I have spent over $500 on upgrades, both externally and internally, and it is at the tech once again for some part replacement and tuning. DMR no matter what you do are as time consuming and pricy as full sniper rifles.

With that in mind get a good brand to start from. Do not skimp on the base gun. After you've played with it for awhile and am happy with the feel of it start working on upgrades for it. I've owned my CA M16 for 4 years and it is just now getting to the point where I want it to be. Unless you have large amounts of disposable income a DMR will take time.
This is just my 2 cents. I have a G&G M14 Veteran. It comes with an M130 spring which puts it into the 400+ fps group, a 6.04 tight bore, the rest of the internals are upgraded/reinforced right out of the box. If you want to mount optics you have to get the G&G scope mount. The Classic Army has to be shimmed to fit properly. I have a red/green dot on mine and have no problem hitting targets out to 175+ feet. The only con I can really think of is the G&G and Classic Army mid-caps are out of stock everywhere.
