What’s the Deal with the SIG P320 Exploding and Firing “Un-Commanded”?

Social media is very excited these days about “exploding” SIG 320s…so let’s consider what might actually be happening.

Of course, this discussion is invariably clouded by the fact that the P320 did have a legitimate drop-safety problem a few years ago. It was fixed, but many people don’t bother to distinguish between that issue and other alleged malfunctions. So are SIGs really exploding right and left, or is this a case of social media attention making a typical number of incidents with a variety of causes look like a huge trend?
