So I bought a NIB unfired Gen4 G26 a few weeks ago. I finally got around to taking it apart to lube it today before I take it to the range, and noticed when I disassemble it, the firing pin is protruding from the channel every time. Maybe I'm a nervous nelly, but is this normal? I have a G42 and this never happens with it.

It also happens when I pull the trigger and then lock the slide to the rear. After I release the slide then retract it again(without pulling the trigger) it's not protruding.

It's normal. You have to drop the striker/firing pin to take it apart so naturally it will be in a fired position. Once you cock the striker again or simply pull back the striker a touch in the slide it will retract out of sight. You should look at how it all works while it's apart. Understanding how the striker block works in conjunction with the firing pin will better help you to understand how it all works.
