Sterling Mk 4 (L2A3) (Wiki)
Testing started in 1944 but it was put into service starting in 1953.
L2A3: (Sterling Mark 4) Adopted in 1956. Last regular version in service with the British Army, Royal Marines and RAF Regiment.
9mm 7.7" barrel. So in California this is a semi-auto pistol, so the stock mounting ears have been cut off so it is not classified as a short barreled rifle.
There is a metal vane welded into the receiver which prevents installing the full auto bolt, so is a semi-auto, not a full auto.
Three parts kits purchased and the best bits used for the re-welding operation to make California legal semi-auto version.
