Gold AK? Reminds me of that one movie...
Gold irridite galvanizing is probably what h's talking about. Its a zinc dip hot galvanizing. I have no idea if theres anyone that does sort of finish on firearms but it might be cool.
I've always wanted to chrome my AK. They look pretty sick when chromed.
Dark / black chrome looks pretty cool...

black chrome?? should I? - THR
Yo, It's all about the bling, dog.
Anodizing is for Alumn.
I have nickel and gold plated Ak's before, and they turn out great if the prep work is done right.
I prefer electrolsis nickel, also called e-nickel. It will have a dull finish if the surface is coarse bead blasted, and shiny if the surface is polished.
