    Hello all. I am the proud new owner of a G36 and I dig it the most.

    One question. When I rack the slide, the firing pin is sometimes sticking out.

    Is this normal?

    Part of what I was taught about checking a pistol for safety was to make sure the firing pin was not sticking out while racking the slide.

    Thanks all!

    Perfectly normal. It will reset when the slide is racked.

    Very cool. Thanks!

    I did notice that it retracted as the slide comes forward but with any new firearm I want to make sure and not just assume that everything is ok.

    Thanks again!

    Love this pistol by the way. Fits my hand like a glove and has been 100% on function. I think the recoil is manageable. I do want to get out to a range that allows rapid fire so I can see how fast I can get back on target and such.

    The only mods so far are the +0 grip extenders and some non slip grip stuff that I added to the back strap to keep it from twisting in my hand as I am getting my grip.
