How does a pistol eject a live round without manually cycling the slide? Do the rounds pop out of the magazine as the slide ejects the spent cartridge? Does this leave the pistol with an empty chamber or does it manage to pick up another round and chamber it?
I’ve had a gun do that before. It ejected the spent case, a live round, and chambered the third round.

Not sure if this is the same or not.

Compared to both the G19 and the APX the 320 felt very cheap to me.

I can’t put my finger on anything in particular, I am not a polymer connoisseur but it was a feeling distinct enough to make me sell my red dot 320 after one range trip, loosing some money on it without regrets.

Am not that surprised that it’s developing some issues. Truth be told so did the Beretta in the early stages but then they went for a long smooth sail. I just hope that our troops get the pistol they deserve in the end.
I looked at a brand new one at a gun store, thing had scrapes and gouges all over the frame. I have a G19 I've been carrying for 4-5 years and has no such wear. I felt the same about the 320, not impressed. Then again I feel like I'm the only one to think the shield feels cheap too.

I find it odd that there are tens of thousands of P320 pistols being used by civilian shooters and yet there's no uproar over live rounds being ejected from those pistols. Did SIG supply Uncle Sam with a bad batch of magazines, or is the XM1152 ammo defective, or what?

If the civilian pistols work fine and the military ones don't, then the basic design should be sound and the problems fixable.

Many civilian arms will never see 500 rounds fired.

Many civilians are many voices - the military is one voice (or at least one data pool).

Perhaps with the widely varied civilian ammo being fired, the same condition isn't as prevalent.
