Question Oil Pressure gauge

I've had my '84 380SL for 2 years now and have had very few problems(knock on wood), but there is a problem that keeps nagging at my sense of well being.

When cold the oil pressure gauge pegs at the top like it's suppose to, but when it's warm (the car) the gauge rarely goes below between 2 and 3. Is this normal? I've had nothing but diesels so I don't know what it's suppose to do after warmup. The car has 125K on the clock but due to a timing chain break the PO had all of the valves and guides replaced.

Old age and treachery will allways overcome youth and skill!
