* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' has an example in ''Archer Vice''. TheYakuza are besieging the mansion where ISIS are holed up. Problem is, the only weapons they have are Archer's PPK and Lana's TEC-9s, both of which are out of ammo. Cherlene leads them to a gun cabinet filled with ancient muskets and hunting weapons. Archer makes use of a Mare's Leg throughout the episode.

* Peter Grant of the ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' series employs this trope quite a bit, because so much of The Folly's equipment and household fittings haven't been updated since the 1940s. Thus, he uses an antique brass microscope that ''belongs'' in a museum to examine a damaged 21st century microprocessor, and the shooting-range paper targets he trains on look like German troops from World War I.

* In an episode of ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'', former black/green ranger Adam returns briefly to give the current black ranger Carlos some training and confidence boosting. When a monster attacks, Adam decides to use his original black morpher to fight again, despite being warned that previous damage to it would make it risky to use. For unknown reasons, he doesn't use his green morpher, despite the fact that it was more powerful and presumably wouldn't have carried the same risk.[[/folder]]

* Indie musician John Vanderslice opened [[http://www.tinytelephone.com/ Tiny Telephone Studios]] in 1997. It's an entirely analog recording studio: all the synthesizers, microphones, mixing boards, recorders, equalizers, effects boxes, amps etc. are free of digital processing. Much of the equipment was already decades old when he opened, although he's bought some new specialty equipment since then that keep to his requirements.

* ''ComicStrip/DanDare'' suggests this in his first story. Earth ships heading for Venus are exploding when they get near, a problem apparently related to Impulse, the wave energy they are powered with. The solution? Get one of the old rocket ships out of the museum, patch it up and go in that. Sir Hubert nearly agrees, but decides to build new rockets.

* ''Literature/TheSouthernReachTrilogy'': Expedition members get outdated and antique equipment -- even down to their clothes -- to bring to [[EldritchLocation Area X]]. They're not allowed contemporary equipment like cellphones or laptops. The surveyor freaks out when she finds out that the one concession to their group, her assault rifle, is nothing more than 30 year old parts cobbled together. The reason for using old equipment is that whatever created Area X can sense the more advanced tech and attack the items along with whoever is using them.

*** The M9 is a failed attempt at creating a double-action/single-action semi-automatic pistol with modern safety features and chambered for 9x19 that is as reliable as a Beretta Model 1934 chambered for 9x17. An M1934 has only 39 parts, isn't made anymore, can be used in almost any climate, has an estimated service life of well over a century, and, if you're lucky, you might find one that's up for sale which costs less than an M1911.

* The example from ''TheRailwaySeries'' is very closely based on an incident on the Talyllyn railway, in which the railway's newer locomotives were out of commission, and ''Dolgoch'', one of the two original engines from when the line was opened, had to haul the train (and, on one journey, did indeed limp back with a broken spring). Another, similar, incident happened a few years earlier (before the line was preserved) when ''Dolgoch'' was the only usable engine; it derailed and the even older ''Talyllyn'' had to be steamed to recover it. L.T.C. Rolt commented that given the condition ''Talyllyn'' was in at the time, it must have been a brave man who dared to drive it.

** Restored and sometimes modified WWII fighter planes, known as "warbirds", are extremely popular with civilian racing pilots. They remain some of the fastest and most powerful propeller-drive planes ever built, and they are simpler to maintain than jets--to say nothing of the slim availability of cutting-edge jet designs to civilians. The P-51 Mustang is especially prized.

* In 1807 the Ottomans loaded some giant cannons that had been collecting dust since the fall of Constantinople three and a half centuries earlier and used them to repel a British attack on the Dardanelles.

For added value, the Ottomans didn't have the "munition" used by these cannons anymore (they originally fired giant boulders) and just loaded them with debris.

::The Dutch army was totally unprepard for an invasion, so much so they fought with 19th century weapons. Not played straight though, as much of the weaponry was never in the museum. The army just meant to use all these thingsdue to extremely low budget.
