I agree, to buy one with the sole purpose of reactivating, no, it is not worth the money or time spent. However I did buy one once that had two very valuable parts. A great GAW stock and an unmodified WIN-13 Op-Rod. After I stripped all the parts off the rifle, I had a receiver with a tiny weld with no heat discoloration at the barrel and an un-welded op rod track. This became a project to reactivate just because I could and the part was sitting there. In this particular scenario, the juice was worth the squeeze.
