Re: Why now?

Even there you are not correct. I legally own a Mauser 98K military rifle for sports shooting (Ordonanz-Schiessen). The only illegal weapons are fully automatic systems and:

Halbautomatische Langwaffen, die einer Kriegswaffe ähnlich sehen UND bei denen die Lauflänge kleiner als 42 cm, oder die Hülsenlänge kleiner als 40 mm, oder die der Bullpup Bauweise entsprechen sind vom Schießsport ausgenommen

Semi-Auto rifles that resemble a military service rifle AND have a barrel of less than 42cm or a cartridge length of less than 40mm or are a Bullpub-design (like the british SA80/L85) are not allowed for sports shooting

So if I get my hands on a HK91/HK41 I could legally own and fire it (granted, NOT in Ordonanz competitions, those have additional rules). since it fullfills all the above rules
