Haven't a clue what these manuals are worth, but I would like to know which manuals you are keeping.
Bet the keepers are the good ones.

You might go over to www.1919a4.com .
There is some intrest over there right now over USMC Stingers which was built on ANM2 .30s which are close to the manuals you have .

Unfortunately they don't bring that much and are not all that rare. I bought an original mg52 manual for $15. Most of the others are covered in a large reproduction manual that is made up of several colts manuals put together, which I recently bought for $30-40? There's not much interest in any of the aircraft guns regardless of the mfr. David has a better handle on pricing of these than anyone since he sees a lot of them and is very active in the marketplace. Hopefully he will chime in.
The 1919 board is made up of 95% semi owners, however they do pay a lot for oddball items assuming because they are rare, that they hold a lot of value. You may get lucky there because they buy a lot stuff and parts they will never own guns for?

I think I have that MG40 manual. Seems like I got it from the Colt Museum if I remember correctly
