rbernie above makes a good point about THOUROUGHLY CLEANING the new gun. I was always under the impression that a shotgun or rifle is always fired for test function before leaving the factory. A couple years ago, fellow at my shooting club bought a new rifle. Took it home & proceeded to clean it as you should, first clean patch through the bore comes out with a little steel sliver on it, about the size of a finger nail clipping. Looked like a remnant from the machining process. Had he fired it first, it probably would be imbedded permanently in the bore. Always clean a new gun.
