Background 

These are all California legal as of 2016 and can be registered in 2017 as assault weapons.  This means removing some restrictions that apply in 2016 for some of them.

Description

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.
