Everything depends on ur set up.. i wanted to do pin just cuz there cheaper and easier to find.. but i could only get 4 in my keezer ... Tried some my freinds ball lock and sure enough got all 6 in that thought i could.. they a little thinner if ya didnt know. So think bout that stuff for long run too cuz the couple bucks u save on a keg here and there dont mean jack when u go to convert a keezer and gotta pay more for bigger

Check out farmhousebrewsupply.com too. I just ordered $500 worth of **** and had it shipped to Alaska. Fast service getting the order out and products arrived as described. Got a 8-way co2 manifold, 4 ball locks, 4 perlicks, and some other stuff from them.

$85 for two ball locks, and shipping to lower 48 states is only $10. Lucky bastards!

Thanks everyone for the posts. I had a guy local tell me, 50 for one keg on Craigslist. I was thinking most of these other places include a new Oring set and pressure test the kegs for that same price. I'd almost rather get them online, it seems. I would get a pin lock, but the pressure release in a pressure fuse, I don't want that at all.

I don't know about pin lock being easier to find. I've picked up all mine in the last year or so off craigslist, (every ad I've caught) and they've all been ball lock.

Make sure the ball locks you are buying are NOT converted pin locks. That may through a wrench in your spacing.

Agreed.

They have some postings on ebay but I contacted them a few weeks back looking to buy 10 kegs and was given a price of $28 each (lids do not have pressure relief valve and need new o-ring kits) and $95 to ship which worked out to $37.50/keg plus figure $4/keg for an o-ring set.

I contacted them a few months ago and he said he sold all of his $28 kegs and he only had the nicer $38 ones! I wonder if he got another shipment...

I ordered two from Fred at McEver for about $91 shipped, if I recall. Both were loaded with pressure upon arrival and haven't needed o-rings yet. YMMV

I have no doubt that it didn't NEED new o-rings if it was already holding pressure but don't the o-rings reek of soda syrup?
