C & R Machine Gun Question...

I just sent off for the paperwork for a C&R FFL. Just wondering if anyone knows the laws concerning C&R machine guns:

Do you still have to pay the $200 tax stamp?

Do you still have to go through the whole NFA process: background check, fingerprints, months of waiting, LEO signature, etc?

Can you get a machine gun for less money if it's a C&R?

Can they ship it directly to your house?

Once the Form 4 paperwork is completed and approved, a C&R machine gun (say an M1928 Thompson SMG) can be shipped or delivered interstate directly to a C&R licensee; there is no need to go through a Class 3 dealer in the buyer's state.

Within a state, the gun can be delivered or shipped directly to anyone, again once Form 4 approval is obtained. No dealer is needed (unless some state law says otherwise).

A full auto firearm that is on the C&R list allows you to purchase it across state lines... so you do not have to do two transfers... other than that all NFA laws allapy...

If I'm reading this correctly...
A WWII vintage M2 .50 BMG would fall under the C&R list??

I was curious because I worked for a guy about 16 years ago who was restoring some M2's for military musuems at the time. They had to be 100% so we got to test fire them before shipping them off. I just remember him saying he had a class 3 FFL which was all he needed at the time so now I what he was talking about... altho he let it lapse because he was being hit with a $600 renewal fee.. so maybe it wasn't a FFL 03..?
