20-pound CO2 tank (full) $60
2-gauge regulator $40

Those are all good prices (assuming the gear is all in good shape, etc.) Kegs tend to go for $20ish or so per, sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more; $15 is a very good price. I'd LOVE to have a 20-lb tank; I'd check the date on it, but even if it did need a hydro test at the next fill $60 is a very good price. The reg, that's about what they go for.

Ball locks are more common. Either work fine. Ball lock fittings are a bit easier to find, pin-lock kegs are sometimes a couple dollars cheaper. As long as you're consistent, all one kind or the other, you'll be fine (and some will argue that consistency is overrated).

Two cents from a newbie kegger... looks like a pretty good deal. So far I am finding used corny's from $13- $30, were I am from the 20lb. co2 tank is a really good deal. My theory is you gotta start somewhere, so you take what you can get... check out my regulator set! looks rough (really rough ), but they all work and seem to be accurate.

except the regulator? I have been looking on line a a 2 gauge regulator is anywhere from 40 to 150
So I am not sure of the quality of this one but If I can get one new for a few bucks more I would do that
