Too much grease equals a magnet for dirt and grime. Like the old hair creme ditty, "A little dab will do ya!!" -Lloyd 🍻
Sorry gentlemen but this conventional wisdom is technically incorrect. There is nothing about a lubricant that “attracts” dirt. It does hold dirt in suspension and in most cases that is preferable to operating with dry dirt on the mechanism.

Operating without adequate lubrication is far more of an issue than operating with too much of it.

I use moly Grease on the roller and very small dabs of grease in various places, ie, wear surfaces in the trigger mechanism. I use synthetic Lucas oil sparingly on the pins. No oil or grease on piston just clean off the carbon with a brush.
