[nod] Given some of the stuff I've seen restored on YouTube, I can see where even a "destroyed" item might be able to be rescued. As noted: It's a question of "is it worth doing?".

The idea of a j-r-ed component having a chance to fail is a good one; it puts some risk into deliberately buying "cheap" items.

That said: I'm also looking at the side of the matter where the AADA Inspector says "Yeah, it's all well and good you picked up that MG and ammo for $500 from the scrapper; it's still valued at $1,500 in the arena." This is why at "formal" arena events everyone starts with "new" equipment -- there's no point in doing otherwise. (I'd expect to see "scrapyard specials" at BLUD events.)
