With any military style rifle, you must show a need for the rifle. My justification was a smaller round for hunting Roe Deer.
Funny, I use my .308 while hunting, because the boars might show up. You cannot hunt boar with a .223. Oh, self defense can never be used as a need on the paperwork, although it is a given.
It took me a number of months to get the rifle. Permission, paperwork and the LGS ordering the extra 2 round mandatory mag from magpul. You can only hunt with more than a 2 round semi-auto in Germany. If I did not show proof of the 2 round mag, I would not be able to pick up rifle. The gun came with a 20 round mag though, and I ordered more. I cannot find 30 mags over here. They are legal, just not available. For competition, you have to purchase 10 round mags.
