If you put too much lube on the firing assembly, then the parts will not slide as easily, and you have to increase the pressure to compensate. This leads to an increase in kick, and sound level. The best example I can think of would be the Geo. If you lube that "normally" the gun won't even function properly. It could barely chrono to 250 FPS, and the HPR had to be increased dramatically.
