The original Thompsons were designed to use the felt pad breech oiler mainly to lubricate the Blish lock (or so I'm given to understand), as well as the bolt. If the originators built this feature into the gun's design, why would you want to change it? I must assume that a dry Blish lock and bolt is not a particularly good condition for gun longevity.
My own 1928 came without a felt oiler. I immediately purchased and installed one.
