If you mean pure powder then I'd say yes, if you mean some spray can stuff then I couldn't say since who knows what's in it. I mean I'd hate to see something like that react with the plastic and scar the gun.
Graphite is just like the pencil lead, so more less shiny gray/black and excellent for lubing plastic and metal. The gun is likely black so it won't show, and being dry it won't be a dust and grit magnet. Most people these days use Moly, but few people have any in powder form.
Whichever powder you have you can just rub it into the surfaces, and ideally the surfaces should be sanded with 320-600 so they're rough and can hold the powder. That's what I do,but up to you.

Although Amazon.ca is a mere shadow of Amazon.com they have a LOT of graphite and moly lubes....from dry to paste to almost liquid.

If you have a Prime membership it may be well worth it to try a few out as shipping is free if the product is Prime available.

I've always used graphite for lock tumblers etc. Works great.
