Hard to shift

I have a 1991 Nissan 4x4 pickup (5 speed, 4 cyl., 120k) that is hard to shift, especially into 2nd and 3rd gear and when cold. The clutch is almost new and the master cylinder was replaced a couple of years ago. Neither of these helped. A friend said the syncros might be worn and synthetic gear oil might help. Does this sound right? Thanks.

What was replaced with the clutch? Was the throwout bearing and pressure plate changed? If not, the problem is there or internal gearbox failure.

syncros could be worn but a more likely fix is the shift forks themselves, once they get worn down so far they don't have enough "meat" left to push the gear clusters far enough to engage properly.......remove the top of trans and the shifter mechanism and check the forks, they are probably worn to almost a "chisel" point...
