i was wondering if this is a good deal i came across:
five used kegs (all hold pressure) and one extra for parts. 10 lb C02 tank with dual-guage regulator. Hoses, connects, clamps for $200

I can get kegs at my lhbs for $20 so im trying to decide between buying there or getting these. what do you guys think?

Fair price. Is the tank filled?

Fair price if the kegs are reconditioned. The reg's probably worth $30 - $50 depending on condition, the tanks' worth probably $70 or $80 even used.

I dont know if it is filled, i offered him $125 so well see what happens. I am cramped for space so i was planning out on finding a way to exchange the 10# for a five so it may not matter.

He only said he would go as low as 190, considering i can get kegs 20 used and 25 reconditioned from lhbs what would you do?

If I needed a tank and regulator, I would go for it. Otherwise I would buy from the LHBS.
