I thing the mini would do well with dry lube, the mini doesn't need much of any lube once it's worn in. My 196 is polished and worn, smooth as glass, I have handle a few like this that were just worn. The good thing about a dry lube is it should not attach dirt/sand.
Remember the battle of Athens, TN!
