Default Looking for advice please!?

I have a Lancer Tactical lt04t and I'm looking to upgrade to a longer barrel but don't want a suppressor so can I put a dmr upper in place of my shorty? And if so what ones are compatible with my lancer polymer lower

Why do you want a longer barrel, specifically?

For more range I added a new hop up and would like to use as my sniper I have another m4 that is a plastic body so I would like to find something I can just switch parts

You appear to have been misinformed. A longer barrel will not increase your range. A tight bore barrel might, but that's only if it increases your fps(or if your stock barrel is really bad, which it might be since it's Lancer Tactical). Most stock hopup units don't need replaced btw.

The main thing that'll actually improve your accuracy/range/consistency is actually the bucking/nub. I would advise a G&G green, Prometheus purple, or a Lonex 70d bucking, combined with an m-nub and flathop mod.

Any M4 upper should fit.

Before you buy a new barrel try flat-hopping and fixing any compression issues. That should give you noticably better range over what you have now. If you're not happy with the range after that than we can go from there.

Incorrect. Cross-compatibility between different OEM'd receivers is limited.

My bad. I've never had trouble switching around upper receivers so I assumed.

Yeah, some have no issues, but others, like EF/Ares/Umarex are only compatible with each other.

Longer barrel doesn't mean more range, I have several guns with barrels less than 10 inches that shoot 180-200+ feet that out range guns with barrels 230mm+

Echo 1 Gat
TM P90

TM P90 inner barrel is 240mm+tho... I mean, you're right about barrel length not normally affecting accuracy, but P90's don't have short barrels. They're longer than an MP5 barrel.
