Sounds like the British L1A1 *SLR* version of the Belgian FAL, replaced by the L86 *Ibdividual Weapon* or SA-80. The Brit SLRs are semi-only based on the parts installed, but the feds consider them a MG because they have the machined milled cuts needed to install the full-auto components.
Might be L4A3 Sterling SMGs, though.

I figgered the weapon in question was a L1A1 (or FAL), but I've never heard of the JBTs attempting to prosecute anyone (let alone LEOs) for posessing a rifle CAPABLE OF BEING CONVERTED TO FULL AUTO.
If thier new SOP is as mentioned, there's alot of us in trouble. Consider all the owners of L1A1s, M1As, Mini-14 & 30s, etc, etc, etc.
