I received the lot of manuals I purchased from RIA and needing some information as to what these manuals are worth. They both look like new, the fold outs perfect, no stains, no rips or tears.

Anyone have any help?

John,

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
