The gold frames available are the same for everyone. This is the first week there have been three to choose from. I'm not sure if it's known if they're on a set rotation of if it's just random, like the Lost Prophecies from Brother Vance.

Each gold frame costs 1 Ballistics Log to buy. So, this week, you could only have done two of them (unless you saved a completed Weekly Bounty from last week).

Once you buy a particular frame, you can buy that same frame again for 6 Modulus Reports. This means you can grind out multiple versions of the same gun for different roles.

You can only hold one at a time, so if you buy one, you can't buy another until you forge the first one. This doesn't hold true for the blue Forge Vessels, though. You can pick all of those up at the same time, if you have enough Modulus Reports. But you can only pick up each of those once per week.

I'm still unclear what exactly happens, but there is a glitch that can cause frames to disappear. If you have a frame that requires a Gofannon Forge complete in your inventory when you complete a frame in the Volundr Forge, the Gofannon frame will disappear from your inventory, and it will disappear from ADA-1's inventory as well. However, you can only buy one frame from ADA-1 at a time, so I don't know how folks are getting multiple frames in the first place.

EDIT: Regarding which drops will be Powerful: I guess I haven't paid enough attention, but I was under the assumption that the gold weapon frames would be Powerful drops the first time you complete them for the week. If you spend a Ballistics Log to buy it, it will be Powerful, if you spend Modulus Reports, it will be a normal drop. ADA-1 also has a weekly challenge for completing 2 Powerful Frames, which I think is supposed to give you Black Armory armor, but I don't know if that's Powerful or not (I assume it would be).
