The M16 is a good example but what if someone was dead set on getting a FA G36? There are no transferable FA G36. What about a MAG-58? A postie MAG is about $10,000 and the last time I saw a transferable one it was $75,000
We can post varying gun prices, but the intent of the OP was for him to obtain them for his own use by way of the LE demo exception. I just picked a M-16 for an example.
There may be plenty of examples of the price differential, but when you add in the possibility of a felony conviction, and up to $250,000 (individual) fine, or $500,000 (for a corp) I think you will still find the price a good bit high for trying to go around what is legally allowed to be transfered to a non-dealer, vs becomeing a dealer only to purchse a certain firearm.

15.1.2 Forfeiture. Any firearm involved in any violation of the NFA is subject to seizure and
Of course I could be totally wrong and the ATF may be willing to forgive an indiscretion more so then a Pastor, but I would not care to take a chance.
