Well, legal implies an original, not a copy, but that's just semantics. One question would be, for what? I'd presume that Nikon produces the repair manuals for individual products. However, I really doubt that Nikon will distribute it to just anyone, so finding one in the wild will be difficult. If this is for older film cameras, you may have more luck, because Nikon at one time had a wide network of independant repair sources. However, in recent years, Nikon has tightly controlled repair of Nikon products. You are almost obligated to send your Nikon products to a company repair facility unless you are out of warranty. Even then, the independant is a rapidly dying business.
