Question S&W Model 41 Markings

I just ordered a new S&W Model 41 Pistol from Buds Gun Shop. Upon inspection, the roll markings on the gun are not consistent, hard to read, and finish is not what I expected. The gun I purchased was Mfg in March 2020, and according to S&W Customer Service was to have white laser markings which it does not.I have not yet accepted the item from my FFL.
The FFL just received a used Model 41 which has a much nicer finish, clear laser white markings (S/N UBD3471). Not sure of mfg date.
The gun I ordered has a 2-line Mfg marking:
SMITH & WESSON
SPRINGFIELD. MA. USA
The used gun has a 4-line Mfg marking:
MADE IN USA
MARCAS REGISTRADAS
SMITH & WESSON
SPRINGFIELD, MASS.
Can anyone comment on the different markings, and what appears to be a poor quality fit & finish on the new pistol.
