If your parts glisten that is too much. I don't care what super lube you use it, even those that will not harden, will collect dust, burnt powder etc. Use to much and your going to have gunk.
Exactly what he said. If you've got so much lube inside the sideplate that it's collecting gunk, you've got too much in there. I lube with very little oil and only the rebound slide, and a smidge on the hammer pivot post (probably not the right name for that part).
