The feet in the front of the mouse are held with adhesive, yes? I gather you can just lift the corner of the foot with a knife and access the screw and then put the feet back. Also there'd probably be no problem with just snipping that thing there and removing the side button actuator assembly. The button assembly is screwed on there, you can see it, it's an easy removal. Also, you don't need both screws to hold the thing together. One is fine, and it's heavy overkill. Could probably pour any glue in the upper shell mounting area (where the screw drills in) and just put it back together (just one of the drillpoints) it'd be much improved.
Actually, most mice have a notch around where the cord connects holding the shell together yes? Just toss the screws probably.
Yes, that black thing, it's notched. God, thing's upper shell is hilariously overbuilt. This thing could be an easy 71g if they wanted it. If they really wanted to, they could make a 30g version that would be hard to break - all they'd have to do is use furnacing and reinforcing material at some points. They probably responded to market pressure in that people don't want things that are "flimsy" and "too light."
A custom job of these that weighed like 52g would run maybe 800-1300 bucks or so I think.
