Fishking,
We have used it in schools in some pretty cold conditions say 20 to 30 degrees but not in that cold of an environment. I am now speaking only from logic and information I have read. In the conditions you are talking about I believe I would have a special mix to deal with that extreme cold. I would try the Mobil #1 Synthetic 0-W-40 for that application. Check the Mobile #1 Website to review the information. (Mobile #1 Synthetic 15W50 cold weather testing). It does not get cold enough where I live for some testing or I would do that. What type of rifle are you using. If it is bolt gun I would think the 0W40 would be just fine for the extreme cold.

right now I have been using it on the bolt of my AR.
I have seen some firing pins stick with sewing machine oil.
On most of my other guns I have been using G96 without a problem. I am slowly changing over to Gunzilla and I will see how that works.
I was intreaged by the mobile 1 synthetic and like I said I have been using it on my AR , I gess I will see how it works this winter.
F.K.

G-96 is a top notch product there is nothing better unless the low temperature application you mentioned has caused issues. I also still use it and have for several years even before the Mobile issue. The problem with sewing machine oil, Rem Oil and some of the others is they burn off to rapidly. I am not saying they are bad product because they are not for the correct application. But not for the AR15/16 Rifle.
