    Wow. Good luck!

    In the past 15 years I've seen exactly 1 Mauser 71 for sale, and neither of the others.

    The Comblain and Beaumont are pretty hard to get. The Mauser is a bit more available since small quantities were brought in here in the 1960s from several countries, including Germany, and some were brought back by WWI and WWII vets. I can only suggest haunting gun shows, gun auction sites, and placing ads on this and other forums. You might also keep an eye on SGN and other publications.
