not sure what shipping to you would be,
but there is a guy in the Portland area that sells them on Ebay, and on
Craigslist, (2) for $35, plus shipping...

do a search on Ebay for Item number 300191014413
or here is his ebay profile http://myworld.ebay.com/stellarsellerinc/

they are
single handle (the best type in my mind)
ball lock
5 gallon

thanks for the suggestion, that comes out to be about $1 more per keg and it doesnt appear to include new o-rings.

Thanks for the info on the single handle kegs. Are the handles wide enough to use two hands on? I already have a hard time getting the kegs in my kegerator as it is.

Adventures in homebrewing is currently selling cornies for $25. + shipping you just missed the $19 price by a few weeks.

O rings are cheap and easily installed yourself.

I have done business with these folks and have always been satisfied.
They are very quick to ship and since they are located in NC or SC I forget which you recieve the kegs quickly as well.

here's their web site

I forgot to mention about your single handle question.

They are not large enough for most men to get 2 hands in.

Those old Firestones with the plastic pressure relief valve housing have some problems.

1. the valve housing usually are cracked or cracking.
2. I have had no luck at all finding replacements for them.
