I have a few hundred ball lock kegs in Denver, CO. Not close but available.
$35.00 each, cleaned, reconditioned, pressure checked to 80psi.

Thunder - I came across a source that works for Coke about two weeks ago that could get me all the pin locks I wanted for cheap. I really didn't want to switch between pins and ball - but I got to looking at my kegging system and realized for less than $35 I could put a threaded barbed insert in my gas and liquid lines and buy threaded ball and pin connectors. Easy and cheap fix to quickly change from pin to ball - just unscrew one and screw on another. Looked at my father -in -laws setup last night. He already had the treaded connectors and for $12 we can get him running both types. Just an idea if you are torn between kegs.

I could part with two pins - I'd sell 'em both for $45 or $25 each. Needs cleaning and seal kits. Just got them and haven't even had a chance to clean them up. I'll try to get the guy to bring me 4 or 5 more in a couple of weeks.

We'll I started running numbers and although eventually having the ability to swap inbetween pin and ball will pay itself off, my operation is forced to remain small and the price of pickup/disconnects/ect is just too painful

Be aware that ball lock kegs and pin lock kegs have different thread sizes that the plugs tread onto. All told there were five thread sizes over a period of time, starting as small as 9/16, then getting larger, 19/32, 5/8, 11/16 & 3/4.

Here is a link that really helps identify which tanks have which threads.

Good Luck,

By the way, I have brand new threaded for the nut & stem, disconnects 2 pin (gas) or 3 pin (liquid) for $7.50ea. New nut & stem pair $1.50ea in 1/4 or 5/16 barb size. Also have boxes full of tank plugs that were removed from old kegs.
