TLR3 with/without silver accent

I recently picked up a Streamlight TLR3 for my 45c. I really like the fit and function but I hate the chrome ring accent on the aluminum lens cap. Now I see others in photos without the chrome ring. I tool mine back to the store and asked if they had the all black version. They looked at me like I was an idiot and told me all Streamlights have the chrome ring. Searched for info on this and so far nothing. Anyone have any input?

You have the newest version which is rated at 125 lumens, the older all black one is rated at 90 lumens. Wrap some electrical tape around the bezel.

X2 plastidip works on anything and it error proof, comes off if you mess up, just have a razor handy cuz it will stick to the tape and peel off as you peel off the tape I learned the hard way.
