On eBay someone is selling Oneplus 7 Pro GM1910 (china version) but they state that it is T-Mobile unlocked.
Does this mean it is just a chinese model with international-ROM installed?
Will this work on USA GSM mobile carriers?
Will I have any trouble with bootloader unlocking/custom recovery/custom ROMS which I would not have?
Is there any downside of this GM1910 (china version) over the normal Oneplus 7 Pro?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I'd steer clear of it.
If it's a T-Mobile phone, there's a good chance that it's blacklisted due to an outstanding balance on the phone.

Another red flag :
Why doesn't the seller just sell the phone in the same condition (with the original firmware), regardless of which model it is?
If anything, they could offer to flash whatever firmware you'd like.

Guessing the price is too good to be true, but, if you're willing to take your chances, good luck.

Why not give Swappa a shot? You can ask the sellers directly any questions you'd like & I bet if you made a fair & reasonable offer, you'd get a better experience that whatever that deal is you presented here.

T-Mobile version is a 1915, the US unlocked version is a 1917.
Stay clear of anything that is not a US version if you are in the US.
While it may work, you will not be able to resell the device to a Verizon user because a 1910 will not work on Verizon.
