Cherry MX Click Grey is a rare Cherry MX variant with a grey slider and black click collar.[1] It is intended by Cherry to be used as a space bar switch, paired with Cherry MX White.

Since MX White is greased to reduce the audible click, this may be why neither MX White nor MX Click Grey are marked as "Click" in Cherry's 1994 Keymodule MX brochure. While not intended as a clicky switch, it likely emits a soft click.

The tactile force is given as 95 cN in the 1985 MX datasheet, but 105 cN in the 1988 numbering schema and 1994 MX brochure.
