Adventures typically has ball locks for $40. I picked up one that needed a lid and the rubber handle glued down for $10 there recently. I got a brand new lid at the same time for $15 $25 and a little gorilla glue and I ended up with an other keg.

I got one from adventures a couple months ago. They are the cheapest I could find. And all in all I was happy with the transaction. But hollymoly was it ever crudid up with syrup. I had to unscrew the post from the keg take the poppets out and soak everything for a week in cleaner.

When there in stock these are good enough for me. They are the same dimensions without the fancy rubber top and bottom.

I bought two ball lock kegs a couple months ago for $30 each BUT... they nailed me $30 for shipping. So, that averaged out to $45 apiece which seems to be the going rate. I will say these were in excellent condition and to my surprise arrived pressurized (guess to prove they didn't leak?).

I recently won a gift certificate from adventures in a competition, anyone know how I use it? should I call them or email them? I could use more kegs.

Craigslist is still the best deals these days. I bought my 3 kegs and 20 lbs CO2 tank for $150 a few years ago.

Haven't seen those prices anywhere close lately.
