    I'd stay with a thin coat of oil.

    Now that I know that regular oil works, I'll know if the grease messes things up. If the grease isn't slick enough I'll go running right back to the oil.

    Grease gets thicker the lower the temperature gets to the point it slows down what ever it is on.
    There is a reason automotive manufactures call out different weight oil for different purposes on a car and a gun is no different. If you don't believe take three sticks of butter. Put one on the table at room temperature one in the refrigerator and one in the freezer for 24 hours. Take them out and try to cut them with a knife and get back with the results.
    Read your manual or go on Rugers web sight and read it they know what they are talking about.
