    What is exactly involved in purchasing a Class III firearm? From what I understand one has to purchase from a Class III dealer and there is some sort of transfer fee, but what is the exact process?

    Welcome Aboard m3877!

    Breifly, the proccess involves the following:

    You first must fill out a form 4 NFA transer,
    next you must get the local law enforcement
    chief Law Enforcement Officer "CLEO" to sign
    off on your NFA form.

    Next, you must get pictures & finger prints taken
    at most ant PD willing to accomodate you, then
    you must pay a one time(for each NFA firearm)
    $200.00 transfer tax to the Govt.

    Next, you wait, and you wait, & wait and wait, and
    wait, at least 6-12 months before your form is approved.

    Once it is approved you may pick up your long awaited
    fun gun.

    If I left anything out or anyone wants to add anything
    by all means jump in.

    I understand the $200 fee is per firearm, but is the form 4 for each one as well?

    Yes,

    A form 4 must be filed for each NFA transfer.
