Has anyone else had magazines come apart when they hit the ground? I was training about 20 people on the 320, indoor range, cemete floor, just about every shooter had at least one magazine come apart.

I've had it happen once or twice. I always check to make sure the base plate is snapped in securely after dropping on a hard surface. If its loose, it will definitely come apart the second time you drop it.

Which 320. The release button on bottom of my Compact mags are sort of outside of base plate. The Sub compact is recessed inside of base plate. Not familiar with FS and Carry mags.

readerjjj, welcome to the Forum, just so there isn't any misunderstanding, this site is not connected with Sig, just Sig owners. If you feel that there is something they should know, I suggest you contact Customer Service. It's a dream for most of us, that Sig would monitor this site, and take some "hints" to heart, but as stated, it's more of a "Dream",, than reality.
I'm going to go out on a limb, considering your opening statement, and guess you belong to a law enforcement agency, changing over to the 320 as an issue weapon. If this is the case, has anyone attended Armorers training?

I have several full size and compact mags for .40/.357. The release buttons are resessed on all of them. I just tried dropping them on my concrete patio and they did not pop apart. I did this from about 5'. Dropped 3 different compact and 3 full size mags.

In the past couple of years the former members of Team SIG put a lot of abuse into the platform but we didn't report any specific issues with stock base pads coming off when hitting the ground. I think I had it happen to me once on a hard concrete floor but that's about it. My CZ magazines did the same thing in that environment. I have thousands of magazine drops where everything stayed together just fine. I am sure that Glock magazines would stay together a bit better but they are also much more difficult to get apart. I don't want to minimize your report but I don't think this has been an issue with the P320 in general.
As was recommended above, if you feel there is a particular problem with your gun or magazines then definitely reach out to SIG customer service.
