"Semiautomatic firearm - This refers to a firearm which is self-loading but not self firing. A single pull on the
trigger results in a single shot being fired. "

I'm thinking of doing the remove the gas piston thing w/ a DSA FAL.
Is there anything from DOJ (or ATF for that matter) that says "once a semi-auto, always a semi-auto" like the "once a machine gun always a machine gun" ruling from ATF?

NO. .
(infact, there is precident to the contrary, with the approved pump-action AR and AKs, built on standard recievers.)
