For some ungodly reasons people think that guns; be they old or new, needed to be drenched with oil/grease. A little goes a long way.

I agree it doesn't require a ton of lube to run, but just like you can't over stir spaghetti sauce, you can't over-lube a 1911. It just runs out of the gun. Too much is preferable to not enough.
