The Sterling Mk 7 “Para-Pistol” is a variation of the Sterling Submachine Guns produced by the United Kingdom from 1944 to 1988. The Mk7 was originally designed to provide paratroopers and non-infantry personnel, such as vehicle crews, with a compact, semi-automatic backup/defense weapon. The Mk7 never saw much success and was later converted to be sold in international civilian markets.
