tight angles in the stamped, plated baseplate!
The sole RM2003 that I have received from an eBay seller was manufactured or packaged with defects: a bent safety bar on one side of the razor head and uneven safety-bar-flange lengths. However, because one safety bar was straight, I was at least able to do a trial shave with that safe side.

So the vendor acknowledges the razor defects from the photos I sent, and asks me, do I desire a refund or replacement? I tell him that I'd really like the razor if he can send one without flaws.
He says he will, then doesn't re-ship anything for a week.
During that week, I email him through the 'bay's internal messaging process asking has he shipped a razor, when, and expected arrival time.
After about a week of waiting, I send a second message, this time more threatening: either reply with shipping info, or if I don't hear from you in three days, I'm requesting a refund from eBay.
Within 24 hours he replys: haven't shipped replacement razor yet; you want the razor or a refund? he asks.
Some customer service. I message back that I want a refund.
I do have what I hope is another RM2003 on order from a DX.com (deals extreme) vendor. I say, I hope, because usually these sellers don't list the model number in their sales ads, which is very frustrating. They also often post images of other models or even different manufacturer's razors in the same ad (this one, in particular, did that).
Even if they ship the right razor, my big concern is whether any of these razors are manufactured to tolerances close enough to ensure that any come out of the factory without flaws. I'll let you know.
