Since the G302 buttons are very quiet with a short button travel distance and no post-travel, I'm hesitant to believe loosening the XM1 screws could fix the much louder buttons.
The Logitech G-Pro with Hero 16k uses the same 50m Omrons as the XM1 I think? And the G-Pro Hero 16k also has post-travel which I've NEVER seen on any other Logitech mice until they started using these new 50m Omrons. The G-Pro Hero 16k is also a lot louder than the G302 with overall worse buttons, but still better than XM1 buttons on the one I had. So it's probably both the fault of these new, stupid 50m Chinese Omrons people are using + the button design and lack of spring tensioning on the XM1 as well.
If the XM1 buttons were in the same league as Logitech's worst buttons they've released I'd probably be using it right now, but they weren't. They were more towards the spectrum of bad/mediocre Steelseries buttons, which everyone knows Steelseries has released some very craptacular buttons.
they could have done it better the XM1, still many things could have been done in that way
and they do have some kind of thing with the m1 and m2 as you talked about
would be good if the new mice, focused more on more technics to change and make better clicks
and the aligned switches or something that makes them better
they fixed many of the pre and post travel on the XM1, with the sidebuttons also, check youtube for the updated black and white versions
the worst thing was that the mouse was solid in contruction, with the non-ergonomic buttons with center and slopes on the side, made it bad for the fingers and you got more strain and damaging tensions
i mean what mice, has come since some of the better logitech g3 that people most likely are right about, and WMO and Intellimouse 1.1, maybe a few and still those are not upgraded or updated for many years
that was better or more than good
they start somethings, too me they do not put enough work into the products or make them worse either with intent do so, or by not doing the product with the enough work that is needed for it to be better, and that is in general
and it can be for other company and manufacturing reasons also
still have the g203 and G pro the updated latest with the rubber cable that came latest.
and i would not say that those buttons are any good, perhaps the spring-design is helpful
and improvements for all mice, that makes the m1 and m2 better is good
still those buttons are very loose , soft and slack, and the faster you click it doesn't keep consistent at higher levels because it is like that
still seems many mice are like that, they need to make and manufacturer more mice with more improvements and switches
otherwise we have to if we use those products, work with what is out right now or wait for new
