Re: Cold weather action lube
In Idaho shooting starts during fall, then rain/snow season progressing into really cold. The secrets are to keep all parts the firing mechanism extremely clean including the trigger mech. I go with lube free.
If a lubricant must be used, I go with a very light dusting of graphite, very light and apply this during mid summer or late spring cleaning.
Worse than oil/grease in cold weather is water during the snow/rain transition period and temp is just below freezing.
I've had no problems in extremely cold weather and several significant problems in temps in the 28 +/- 3 degree range.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
