It varies depending on who you ask. Aside from strict clones of the MK 12 Mod 0 and Mod 1, I think a rifle should at least meet all the important specs of the originals to qualify as an "SPR". The criteria should include:

-18" barrel with rifle length gas system
-Suppressor adaptable muzzle device
-Folding iron sights
-Magnified optics with rangefinding or BDC capability
-QD mounts for optics
-Night vision adaptable (railed forend)
-Bipod equipped
