Yeah I really can't believe that not a single one of the MANY dealers here doesn't have the ability to get bare HPA tanks.

I just DON'T WANT a screw-in regulator for certain guns. It seems like no one makes traditional hard mount adjustable regulators any more...

The industry is kinda dumb sometimes.

Swap My Tank -- New & Used Paintball Air Tanks

I'm sure he can set you up with a new ninja tank only. You may have to contact him directly, but he swaps/sells regs all the time, so it shouldn't be a big issue.

There are three main sources for HPA bottles.
Luxfer, Carleton, & Catalina.
L6X composite cylinder specifications - Luxfer: Setting The Standard Worldwide
Carleton Technologies - Pressure Technology division manufactures composite launch tubes, drive shafts, submersible housings
Catalina Cylinders - Products Page

For adjustable regs I would recommend looking up Kermode Concepts or Air America.

I already have 2 air america, one flat line and one max flow 4500 regs and I think all 4 are on bottles that will have to be thrown away this year.
I just would like to be able to replace them afford-ably this year.

The carbon fiber ones have a 15 year life. I don't think the others do.

Buy used tanks. Sell those regs.
Do not buy used oxygen tanks. To many problems to run into. Biggest one is kaboombs

LOL, and how much did you spend on the tanks back in the day? I have a 68/3000 from around a decade ago that still has a $250 price tag on it. Even if you buy four Ninja tanks (Let them know, they will not place the reg on the tank so you can use yours) at $150 a piece, you are probably spending around what one Flatline cost back in the day, not taking into account inflation.

Or, buy one a month, that way it isn't as much of a stress on you. Easily you can sell the regs for $30 each, as they will be brand new (Ninja may even send them in the packaging), and in the end, you will make back $120.

Or you can buy used tanks from Crossfire. Or even find others selling used tanks here, in hydro or not, that still have plenty of life to them, remove those regs, and install your own.
