Am curious if anyone has info on how much sub-zero Temps have on air gun performance? In particular, break barrel rifles and their seals.

If a springer has had a ‘lube’ tune with heavy lubes then cold will likely slow it down. If it only has light oil for lube I doubt cold would affect it much. Seals are likely fine as urethane can handle quite a bit

My TX200 shoots great in the cold. Might even gain a few fps. Like mentioned, I lube very lightly with Krytox. Have shot gun from -10 to about 35 degrees at it affects the scope's ranging ability, but gun velocity does not vary enough to change impact significantly.

There are many that use heavy lubes to calm the cycle on a springer as opposed to properly fitted and lightly lubed internals. That is where the problem would be.
