I've seen a few reproduction manuals. The quality of the pictures was so bad that I wouldn't put out a product like that and have my name on it.
Sure, the manuals are available for around $200 (and up, actually). But if I sell the little manual for $2 like I do the MP44 manual, it'll take me 15 years to recover the investment of the manual. That's not a wise investment in any market.
If someone has a decent original and can scan it at 300dpi grayscale, please email the pic to me. If it's a photocopy with crummy pictures, thanks anyway, but no thanks. I try to turn out a quality product, and I can't make something better than it is to start with.
