So I've had my mouse (Corsair Scimitar) for a long time now, and its seen its time and a few months ago the right click started to go, although I'm quite versed in fixing tech, mice just are not my thing, and I'm very heavy handed (the few past mice I attempted to fix can attest to that) lucky its only really messing with me in two of the games i play, and work hasn't been effected yet but its getting worse and worse.
I personally haven't a clue how to start with this or if its possible (I have no money to buy a new one or i would have months ago) and this Forum hasn't failed me yet in all the long time I've used the collective brains

if you mean paying someone to replace the button\switch;
the Scimitar RGB Elite is only a ~$70 mouse.
i would doubt you'd find a shop to do it for much less than that.

the similar Logitech G600 is currently going for less than $40.
it's only 8200 DPI, but i tested both and enjoyed the Logitech quite a bit more.

If you Google 'corsair scimitar mouse disassembly' there are plenty of videos on how to take it apart. Often the lil micro switches havent failed, theyre just dirty. With the mouse disconnected from the PC, and the mouse disassembled, apply a generous amount of isopropyl alcohol into the switch and manually click the switch 30+ times. Shake out excess liquid and do it again. Let fully dry, and give it a test on your PC
