Bought my 320c about two years ago, I doubt I have 500 rounds through it. I had two failures, with HST 124s, no less, around 200 rounds in when I had a WML attached. A well respected Sig guru, theorized I had the WML too tight. Respectfully disagree. Don'tr use it with a WML in bedroom any longer. The job went to a PPQ. The Sig gets carried Winters. Currently carry a Shield in 9. I am blown away by how easy it conceals and how it tames recoil. Find it extremely accurate under30 feet. My net after rebate and FFL fee was $260 (not LE either).
Just scored a 320 compact RX which I hope arrives Wednesday. First RMR ever.

Thoughts on availability of magazines, grip modules, etc.
This is normal, even without the military contract. The latest yard mark I can point to is the Smith and Wesson M&P. When the M&P came out, and for five years afterwards, it was tough getting magazines. This is a supply/demand thing. They are shipping/selling guns so quick that all of the resources go to putting magazines with guns. Even before Sandy Hook, I had an inside man at Smith, and ordered magazines direct from them because I couldn't get them. It still took four months to get my order.
Most vendors stay out of stock on the desirable 320 magazines right now due to demand. When they post up $35 320c mags, they go quick because people see them and buy 10-20 to meet their needs. Or a bunch of people buy 3. That's the drill.
No doubt SIG is gearing up for the Army contract, but there isn't enough guns/magazines affected right now to put a dent in the already taxed supply chain. Two years from now will be the interesting part.
Try the 2017 medium frame w/ light on your 2014 gun, and vice versa with the small frame w/light on the 2017 trigger group. At this point the only way to proceed is to start trying to eliminate pieces that might be possible culprits.
