Yes, the price can get up there quick. Normally Form 4 from outa state coming from individuals you have the 200 tax stamp to get it to the transferring dealer, plus ship/insured cost. Then the dealer has to transfer it back out to individual you have another 200 tax stamp plus transfer fees, which as stated above can vary, mostly run in the 100 dollar range, but they do vary. That is why if you are getting something from an individual from out of state on a Form4 you need to make sure who is going to front the first 200 tax stamp transfer fee.
A NFA list on a Form 4, an individual can only tranfer it to another individual in there state or to a dealer out of state. Either way there is a 200 tax stamp involved. And not to mention the wait & wait & wait, for things to get do. You must be a patient person when dealing with NFA items. We have had some dealer to dealer transfer back the same week they were faxed in and some of our Form 4 transfers have come back in as little as 3 weeks. But that is rare.
