18500 body for KL4 head and L1 tailcap?
« on: April 27, 2008, 03:08:34 AM »
Hi guys,

I did a quick search and didn't come up with any leads. Do any of you know of a custom body that is sized for the 18650 cell, KL4 head and L1 tailcap?

Either Leef or Mirage_Man were making a nice E-series compatible 18500 body (selling on CPF). The issue is that the L1 tailcap uses acme threads- and I know of no custom E-series bodies with those threads. Sorry.
A few favorites from milkyspit, McGizmo, Surefire, MR Bulk and others

Here at Flashlight-Forums we put the "FUN" in "DYSFUNCTIONAL."

Thanks Chronos. I noticed the Acme threads but have no idea how much of a challenge that would be for the typical fabricator. This particular application seems compelling so I might try pursuing this with a willing machinst or shop.

The KL1 head that's presently on my L4 body is kicking bright on a 17670, superior to the eye to the Malkoff M60, Dereelight CL1H V3, and L4. The handling would be significantly improved with a fatter 18500 body, IMHO.

Wilkey, what has been done to you KL1 head that makes it seem brighter than a Malkoff M60.  One of Milky's mods?
