Will R1 work in cold cold weather?


Recommended Posts

Although I'm no expert in extreme cold weather hunting, I can give general testimony to the R1's reliability. I've used mine at 15 degrees F with no problems.


As with any firearm, success in cold weather is all about being prepared for the conditions.

The fun should be clean and lightly lubed with a fine quality lubricant that will not gel in extreme cold.


Care also should be taken in moving the gun from warm to cold and back to warm, as condensation can accumulate on internal parts and then freeze.


I'd take my R1 to the frozen north without hesitation, and I'd be confident that it would perform.
