my sa-20 gets very ''stiff'' when it gets below 30 deg f. the gas tube assembly is clean so it seems the resistance is coming from the bolt/ reciever area. there hasn't been 2 boxes shot thru it since it was last cleaned . i lube little to none at all. it this typical/ any suggestions?
thanks

If you shoot some Remoil Pro Cubed on it, that should do the trick. I've used Breakfree CLP for years, but the Remoil Pro3 seems better.

As for "stiff," are you experiencing jams, or ?

gun has always cycled but bolt returns to fire position way slower than it did in 70 deg temps. seems like any colder and bolt wont cycle closed all the way. is this increased resistance happening in the receiver?

It sounds like "no lube" is your culprit.

when i posted the first time i had not pulled the trigger assembly as that didn't seen like a likely problem.
entire action was pretty clean and dry. finally pulled the trigger and found half a soybean sitting in the trigger mechanism. removed that, lightly oiled and back to normal.

I'm sorry to hear that you were temporarily waylaid by part of a soybean. That one, I never would have guessed.
