The availability of of used kegs has recently become an issue. See: Are Used Kegs Running Out?
This has been especially true of pin lock kegs, because new pin locks have not been coming on the market. To my knowledge no new pin lock offering was generally available to homebrewers. This has caused the price and availability of pin locks to be a serious issue. For example, MoreBeer’s Pin Lock offering has sky-rocketed to $85 per keg.
Well, today is a happy day… Announcing NEW Pin Lock Kegs from cornyieg.com

One thing to consider is that these are basically ball lock keg dimensions, so if you need a shorter keg, used would be the way to go.
