The links shows the important spots to lubricate a bolt: the rear of the lugs, the cocking cam, the extraction cam. They should all get some grease.

The firing pin should get a drop or two of oil. It's not 1937 any more, it's not hard to find an oil that won't gum up in any weather. Try Triflow or Breakfree.

You should give a new gun barrel a thorough cleaning to get all the manufacturing grit out of it before it gets mashed into the barrel by firing. I once pushed 16" of red grease out of the barrel of a new Zastava 223; I hate to think what would have happened if I'd fired it first!
