Springfield has a very good customer service department. They should fix you right up. As far as if something else goes wrong and having to send it in again, cross that bridge when you come to it. Their service is good and you should be fine.

Never had a Springfield 1911 but just off the top of my head it could be a few things.
Lube they use on new guns to prevent rust
Bad metal mixture that skipped past quality
Different polishing method used on the affected part

Snake, I merged your other thread with this one. So, the continuity is a little off, but it makes sense to have it all together.

If it cleaned off, then you're good to go. Unless the finish came off too, it may have been some type of oil/preservative that just dried on there. If the Parkerizing looks good to you, problem solved, case closed.

Now, just keep it oiled and go shoot the heck out of it.
