Sometimes the information contained in instruction manuals is there for a reason. Although the manual doesn't point it out, the trigger spring has a small piece of foam inserted in its coils. That foam is, I believe, intended to damp out resonance and by doing so reduce fatigue stress and resultant breakage. It is quite possible that lubricating the guide rod and spring will increase resonance and ultimately breakage.
