Default Dealers private stock

I know it is legal for class III firearms to be transfered to dealers but is it legal for the dealers to keep them in their "private stash" and to operate them if they are not intending to sell them?

Machine guns registered before May of 86 are grandfathered. They are still transferrable. MG's made after then can be sold to Class III dealers IF (and only if) they have the proper paperwork from an agency requesting a demonstration of the gun. These demo guns are only transferrable between Class III dealers and when the dealer is no longer a dealer, he must transfer them to another Class III dealer or surrender them to the ATF.

Of course they can shoot them while they own them.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
