Our bodies should fit the Surefire KL4 head (and other Surefire E Series heads) fine, Duster1671.
Above is a photo that I just took right now with our E1 Classic body and a Surefire KL4 head unit, no lube added, threads on perfectly.
The Surefire KL4 head you have might have dirty threads, cleaning the threads and adding a bit of lube should solve the issue.

Feel free to contact me at the company email if you need anything for faster service as I don't log on to CPF as often as I check my emails.

About your questions regarding the threads on the 18650 bodies.
We beefed up the weak spot on the bodies where 18650 bored Surefire bodies happen to all break.
We have had no incidents of the bodies breaking as far as I know.
I sent a dozen bodies to CPFers to test for 2 months before release and asked them to use them as roughly (but not purposefully trying to break them obviously) and they all held up fine.

And yes, our future E Series bodies will be made in 18350 and 18650 configurations.
But I am not barring out making 16650 bodies again in the future if there is demand for them.

Cheers.

Thanks Mark. I'll try cleaning the threads on the KL4. I have a E2E head that binds up too, and that one hasn't been cleaned recently either.

I'll try tonight and report the results.

When will the E2 classic bodies in HA3 Natural be available again? I was ready to order but only see black.

Just an update on the issue I posted about above--

There was an issue with the threads on the E1 body I had, causing it to thread into some E-series heads but not others. Mark investigated and sent me a replacement that works perfectly with all the E-series heads I have. Thanks again Mark!

Just doing my job, thank you for your help with the investigation. It really helps with improving our quality control for all future E bodies.

Cheers.

I finally built up an 18650 body and tailcap I had sitting around for a while. A smoothie head and tungsten lamp arrived in the post this morning and I slipped it all together after dinner. I have to say I'm very happy with it. It's a nice, small packaged with good output. Beam was very nice with the OP reflector, no holes and fairly smooth/round. Didn't even need the included shims, though they are a nice touch.

Triple LED dropins available too now https://www.lumensfactory.com/en/product.php?cid=50
Mark, how would one install the GITD gaskets on these?

Hi Eric,

Thank you for your support.
There is a threaded ring on top of the module, just unscrew that and take the Carclo Optics out and install the glow gaskets.

PS. I designed our Triples to be FULLY compatible with our P60 to E Head Units. Absolutely ZERO gaps.

These look great. Might see if they will fit in a VME head and try in on a 1X123 body With a 16340!

Just curious, are there any plans to do another batch of E-series bodies with the pocket clip? I've been enjoying the two 18650s I bought last year but wouldn't mind swapping the one I use at work for a body with a clip.

CanAm - A good alternative to a body with a clip might be the Tactician style deep-carry tailcap. I have one of those on an E-series body and I really like it.

Not a bad idea, definitely something to look into. I just prefer to keep the lens end up, out of my pocket and away from whatever tools might be in there while I'm on the clock.

Yes, we are hard at work trying to bring a series of clipped E Bodies out this year.
