Update Form 4 ????????????

Several years ago, I bought a Taylor tube Sten MK.II. It was a real piece of crap. Using the sights it shot something like six feet to the left..................

I recently sent the gun to Don Quinnel who assembled a Sterling parts kit using my registered Sten tube thus making me a Stenling.

Do I need to do anything with my Form 4 since it is marked "Sten Mk.II" (as well as my previous address) ? In other words does it need to say Sterling or Stenling on the Form 4 (not that most LEO would know the difference) ?
You know the rest. In the books you have read
How the British Regulars fired and fled,
How the farmers gave them ball for ball,
From behind each fence and farmyard wall,
Chasing the redcoats down the lane,
Then crossing the fields to emerge again
Under the trees at the turn of the road,
And only pausing to fire and load.

I am not familiar with the sten or the sterling, but whatever the manufacturer of the regestered part is, that is still what the ATF considers to be the make of the weapon. ie; a Bushmaster with a Colt lower parts kit is still a Bushmaster.
Silencers have NEVER been illegal !

It's still considered a Sten as the tube is still original, and all stenlings are built off the sten tubes.
