I am assuming here that you went to brewersdiscount.com
Where they state Cornelius Kegs and Ball lock kegs:
I agree that they are a good source.
But technically Cornelius is a specific manufactor of kegs there are others such as Firestone and a few others. I'd suggest you ask them what they mean because it looks like they are stating Cornelius Keg and meaning Pin locks
Or you should specify ball locks or pin locks when ordering so you don't have any mixups.
There are a few other differences you might want to look into as well
There are single handle kegs and double handle kegs the single handle are cheaper. Also some of the old Firestones have plastic pressure relief valves most of these are cracked they may still be funtional but you'll be hard pressed to find replacements or replacement parts.
I got 1 that has some kind of oddball lid that won't fit any other corny I've ever seen.
