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

Brian Enos' Slide Glide LITE. I use it year 'round.

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.

TW-25B works well for me.

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.
