What you are calling (metal shavings) is not metal but the silver coating on the recoil spring. All Gen3 Glocks have this, the flakes will go away with use and when you replace the recoil spring with another new one you will see the same silver flakes again. All is good, clean, shoot and enjoy your new glock.
