the Nagant revolvers made for nice hand warmers, always worked, whereas the Lugers just seized up in the cold.
It had more to due with the differences between how the Soviets and Germans treated their weapons for the extreme cold. If I'm remembering correctly, the Germans used plain old gun oil and the Soviet troops used a mixture of gasoline and gun oil. If you're really worried about it, get some Swiss Automatenfett or Waffenfett it's designed for use by their troops in the alps.
