Specifically, what kind of FTF's? Ignition failures? Light primer strikes?

I am told that CLP can freeze and become sludgy at low temps. I also was on the range last week and we had an M4 exhibit constant light primer strike FTFs. We deduced it was the CLP freezing or sludging up (probably in the firing pin channel). It was about 20 degrees F.

Fortunately for us P99 owners, if the light primer strikes are a result of sludging lubricant in the striker channel, you can disassemble the striker and wipe it free of lubricant. Sentry Solutions Moly dry lubricants are an excellent alternative to liquids and avoid many of the liquid pitfalls.

I'll bet it's the CLP gumming up among other things. Almost certainly a good dry lube like Sentry Solutions' products would reduce if not totally prevent this type of malfunction in any temp. They do require reapplication and touching up after significant use.
