    Mobil 1 or Royal Purple 5W20 Synthetic. Works great year 'round. They also make cleaning easier.

    I use either SLIP 2000, or the old school route, LSA. LaRue Tactical sells it as their machine gun lube, which it is, it also works well in lower temps.

    At those temperatures your gtg with any high quality lubricant. I would just stick with the lubricant that you have been using.

    +1. It has a pour point of about -60 F. Also stands up very well in hot weather. It does not evaporate off and stays put. I was using it on my G35 at our last USPSA match and had no issues. Temp was at 0 when we started an 5 when we ended. Others had problems with their guns due to the cold - not sure what they were using.
