i really don't have this problem. very seldom have ever had issues with any firearm i have bought new. i generally check something out pretty closely before i decide i am going to buy it. if it's not acceptable in fit, finish or function i don't buy it. and actually i do expect a quality item when i buy it. if i buy new, i expect new, not a second.
of course not buying mine online like you, and buying mine from my LGS i can see what i am thinking of buying before i put my money down. plus my LGS has a very solid reputation and has been in business for over 35 years.
