What are the steps to purchasing a full auto and overall cost except weapon.
Link Posted: 12/15/2001 1:29:20 PM EDT
find dealer,if dealer has weapon in stock pay for weapon (or put down depostiot), file out forms, get cleo sign off if non corperation, get fingerprinted for fingerprint cards, once forms filled out, send off with money for tax stamps, wait,still wait, forms come back, pick up weapon. go to range, have fun [:D] thats pretty much it in a nut shell tax stamps are $200 for a machine gun, shortbarreled rifle/shotgun, suppressor and destructive device $5 for any other weapons if the weapon isnt in stock expect a fee to do the transfer into the state

Is the $200 tax stamp a one time shot? I was told that every year you have to pay like a maintainence fee. When having a CLEO sign off is that from your county or from county or city of purchase. Not sure if there is a class three here in Sioux Falls.

The $200 is a transfer tax. You pay it when the gun transfers to you, and if you ever sell and transfer the gun, you pay it again. The CLEO has to be from your county or city in which you reside. It can't be from another city or county where you don't have legal residence.

Another question for you. Do you have to purchase the firearm from a class 3 dealer in your state or can you purchase it from a dealer in a neighboring state? The reason i ask is because i do not know of any class 3 dealers in my state but i do know of one right over the border in N.H. that i have purchased a couple rifles from in the past. AR-ERIC

Is the $200 the only money that will be paid to the feds during ownership? Does it cost anymore for transfer fees to purchase from out of state since there is not any class 3's anywhere near?

$200 tax paid to transfer the firearm to you on a Form-4.
Does it cost anymore for transfer fees to purchase from out of state

Out of state seller may or may not pay tax to transfer to dealer, so you may be liable for that $200, then the transfer from the dealer to you, another $200. Cheaper to buy in state, person to person that way (only $200). Then you may have to "GREASE" your dealers palm, anything from $25-200 just to have him run it on his books if it comes from out of state.
since there is not any class 3's anywhere near?

If you are allowed to own a C3 item via your state/local law, you should be able to locate a C3 somewhere in your state to handle in out of state transfer into SD. I have a C3 3 minutes from me, but I am using a fella 1-1/2 hr away, so I cannot understand your "since there is not any class 3's anywhere near."

I cannot find a class 3 listed on Bowers. Also have checked a couple of local gun shops and know knows of a class 3. There use to be one about an hour away but is not in business any longer. Figured I would see the process and expense before I go see a dealer and find something I can't do without.

Post a question here then, if any SD readers there, they should be able to advise. The recommended dealer list comes from nominations on the "board of inquiry". May try there also. [url]http://subguns.biggerhammer.net/mgmsg.cgi[/url]and [url]http://subguns.biggerhammer.net/inquiry.cgi[/url]
