10/22 Out of the Box - Shoot it or call CS?

Just dropped $500 on a 10/22 - briefly inspected it, but it was covered in oil which made it hard to see the surfaces. Upon getting it home, I wiped it down and noticed several of the "shiny" marks, both on the stock and barrel, are not cleaning off.

The stock has several shiny impressions in it (as well as scratches) and the barrel has a faint scuff that is noticeable in direct light. For a $500 .22, I would expect, well, better. Yes, I know it will get worn with use, but there's a difference between me putting a mark there and finding out it came from the factory like that.

FYI, it was new and in the plastic bag - unopened.
