I need to buy 4 more Corny kegs.
Here's a quick sample of offerings I found:
More Beer - $49.95 free-shipping - 'Kegs are sold "as is".' - I assume that means you can't return them
Adventures in Homebrewing $40 plus shipping - "If you are unhappy with your used 5 Gallon Cornelius Kegs for any reason, we will gladly take them back."
Cornykeg.com - $49.95 + shipping - Pepsi Ball lock - Grade A
Cornykeg.com - $42.95 + shipping - Used Pepsi Ball Lock Keg - "If you are unhappy with the function of the corny keg you may return it for a full refund"
LHBS - $55 - last time I looked, they had a range of beat-to-death to nice. I guess I could cherry-pick them, but it's a 4 hour round trip ($30+ gasoline)
I'd rather pay a little more for nicer ones. I know it's always the luck of the draw when they pull the next one off the pile, but has anyone had particularly good (or bad) luck with any of the suppliers?
P.S. I recently lucked out and picked up two pristine Cornelius brand ball locks from a retired homebrewer. Hardly a scratch on them. Took 'em apart and besides the o-rings, they are in perfect shape. $20 each. I'm spoiled now...
