For anyone interested, a seller on ebay has just listed fifteen or more original turret manuals for a variety of turret types. They are listed individually, not as a group. I've never seen this many originals come up at the same time. I'd love to have originals of every turret type that I have parts for but I just can't afford it. I'll try to bid on some but I'm sure I'll get smoked quickly so remember me if you win the bid on any of these, I'll buy copies or trade parts for copies. :D

If it means anything, I bought a copy of a B-17 Field Service Manual from that guy few months ago and it was a very high quality copy. Delivered exactly what he said he would.

Thanks Bill, I'm glad to hear that. The ebay seller has a very good rating and from what I know of him, he's a good guy. His primary interest is collecting and restoring a specific type of vintage "boat anchor" Navy radio but he sometimes winds up with vintage military a/c and turret manuals. I'd love to have original turret manuals for each type of turret that I'm researching but it's just not in my buget. For my purposes, copies work pretty well.
