    I found a pair of Flak 2.0 on eBay that's listed as a Gunmetal frame. The frame appears to be sparkly. I can find no reference to this frame material anywhere. It's not a custom frame option on Oakley.com, either.

    OAKLEY FLAK 2.0 XL SUNGLASSES GUNMETAL

    Does anyone know what this is? In person does it look like Elton John's sunglasses, or is it more subtle like a mix between polished and matte?

    Definitely Steel....as I just picked up this frame myself. Really awesome color, haven't seen anything like it before from Oakley.

    The Granite color on the Batwolf is very similar: Batwolf Granite / Black Iridium Polarized

    Is it painted or is the flake actually molded into the plastic? I've found more pictures now that I know what it's called but I still can't tell if it's flashy or just a subtle bit of pop.

    It is a painted frame. In person, the metal flake is very subtle.

    Exactly what @pistolpete23 said, comparable to the granite frame however it's more of a matte finish, not gloss so the metal specs are subtle...
