QA at these price points seem more of a lottery. I think I must be quite lucky, all clicks of mine except the wheel are very crisp.

Specs
Sensor
PMW3327: 220 IPS 30G
Dimensions
117L * 63W * 36H mm
Weight
76g +- 1%

Doesn't sound too shabby


Edit
First impressions

Got mine today
Sensor
PMW3327 220IPS 30G
Default profile steps 400 800 1600 3200 @ 1000hz
LOD 1CD, no adjustment in software
Clicks
Chinese 50M Omrons.
All buttons a tad lighter and crisper than SteelSeries 110, less travel.
Wheel click also lighter but less crisp.
Button latency 2ms faster than G Pro Wireless (wired mode).
Wheel
Kailh 9 encoder.
(Perhaps too) subtle notches while turning.
Wheel ribs very tactile
Shape
Significantly less slant than G Pro, might still have been a bit less for my taste.
Significantly less forward taper than the G Pro
Perfect height and curve, doesn't touch my palm while clawed like the G Pro or Abko would.
Feet
Worst part: The feet are too thin. The mouse bottom is partly indented, with a sharp edge on the de-dent that snags on the mousemat.
Coating
Medium coarseness plastic texturing, better than G Pro / GPW fine texturing for my dry hands
Balance
Noticeably back heavy, but can be fixed by a 10 min mod that reduces back weight by 6 gram.
Cable
Second worst part, it's thin but very stiff. Might splash out on a paracord on this one.
General build quality
Seems top notch for a mouse at this budget (€25), comparable to the Steelseries Rival 110. No rattling.

Quick verdict
Well built light budget ambi, needs some investment to make it really shine (feet, cord). Can be easily modded for better balance and weight (70 grams) in about 10 mins without visual signs but light bleed. If you do that it's probably the best MX300/G1/G3 alternative in some time: No cuts and edges of the G303, less slant and bulge than the G Pro, even a fair bit lighter.
What replacement mouse feet are you using?

im also wondering if there are any mouse feet that works?

too me compared to the logitech g203 and abkoncore a660, the m2 is quite cheap in the feeling and it also drags a bit because of the small mouse feet on the front

though it, may stop it more on some mats a little

Is the cord similar to the hard one on G100s, or the absolutely terrible one from Thermaltake Ventus R?
