The Golden Skin was a skin specifically for the M93R. This skin has since then been removed due to the M93R being converted into a mesh.
The picture that is currently being used is a recreation of what the skin looked like — it is not the actual skin.
It's rumoured that the M4A1 had a Golden Skin too.
Anyone who somehow bought this was permanently banned, as the only way you could buy it was through glitches.
