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.
