    Tell me more about that HA-NAT flatend tailcap? Are they available from anyone? I've never seen that before.

    blitzlicht65, you running a E2E Defender bezel on one of them? Also, I can't remember the name of the body on the non McClicky black one. Lost my bookmark.

    Hi Bill,

    yes it's an E2d Defender bezel ring, and the other body is a Vital Gear 1*123-body.

    Thanks. Yes, Vital Gear, which is actually shorter than the E1E body. Really compact, but I'm not sure about the tailcap quality.

    what kind of runtime and brightness can you expect with the TW4? Also, how big is it?

    Thanks much,

    I'm not sure how bright the KL4 was on the E1e body...probably around 60 lumen? The KL4 was really under-driven, but it did last a while...at least 90 minutes or so before it got really ugly. As far as how big it is...it's probably the same size as an E1L. Just one battery. Here's a group picture for size comparison to other Surefires.

    Hello Ttran97,

    I retired my TW4. I discovered that Lumins Factory offers a high output lamp assembly for the E1e, and have converted back to that.

    Now I am stuck with the high output E1e and my stock L4...

    That E1e LF unit is great. I've combined that with my VG FB1 body for it to become one the absolute tiniest flashlights that's useful out there.

    Having milkyspit mod a KL4 and putting it on the E1e body is amazing, too! 165 lumen of pure white wall-o-lights! The downside of this setup is the cost. I think my little TW4 has over $300 invested in it! haha. But if you already have an E1e and KL4 and just itching to make it a super light...

    Hmm... $300? I sure didn't see $300 for my part!

    No, the milkspit mod was a VERY reasonable cost. It's the cost of getting the KL4 and E1e that made up about 2/3 of that $300.

    You'll have to PM mr. milkyspit and tell him that you're interested in getting your light modded...then just mail your light to him and he'll work on it and send it back to you.

    Those Ganp bodies are too sweet , a bit too much for that punny KL1 and SF switch..But I haven't seen any brass heads or switches other than Cubs or Peaks..

    Well, I'm getting ready to build up a TW4 clone using a KL4 head, Vital Gear FB1 body, and AW's rechargable 123A's.

    Once the head gets here, It'll be built up soon...

    Here is my matched pair. Is that what you are looking for?
    I love this combination.


    and


    Are a couple of my KL4 based flashlights. It matched pair not only look the same in the image but the beams are virtually identical. Almost impossible to do as those of you with multiple KL4's know. At least almost all of mine produce a different tinted beam except the 2 tw4's shown in the top image.
    The KL4's are the same in these two images. I love that body in the lower image. It is an unmarked surefire body if I remember correctly a real beauty.

    The top pic looks like those are Aleph bodies with SF tailcaps.

    Heh - do you really want to handle one that's been running for a while? I'm serious. I have to sandwich it between two cold packs in order to do a runtime test with a TW4.

    As for the runtime - I get 15-16 minutes in regulation with an AW 123 rechargeable. Then it goes quickly out of regulation from there.

    TW4 pics? I have one...

    Well, I have one KL4 that's got the most perfect tint. That's staying put.

    I have one KL4 that's my daily use unit (shown) and another one coming inbound that will likely be the Milky candidates.

    I have a KL4 black unit that's going onto a VLTOR Scout mounted Aleph body.

    I really like the old skool look of this combination..



    And here is a SUPER tiny wall of light, although I typically use the Milkymod on a Mirage Man 18650.

    If I ever get my KL4 Milky modded, I'm going to run it on an 18650. Maybe I'll go really crazy and run it on a TnC C-Flex pack with an AW C cell.....

    Well, I've also got some of Koala's E series towers ordered. That unit may very well supplant the TW4 clones that I've got and make the light even smaller.

    Anyways, I've got two more KL4 heads coming in. Once that gets done, I'm going to start flushing out most of my KL1's and may very well sell my KX1 head since it doesn't like rechargeables too much. That will fund the Milky mods. Yay!
