It would be good to get more technical details in general, but specifically on the FCU used.

Pure speculation, but I do not believe it's the customworks simply based on the trigger, the CW comes with the special trigger, and no manual safety. The trigger and plating are also the only real differences between a CW FCU and a standard one, so if they're using the basic FCU off an M18/17 the only loss is the trigger and cool plating.

Since it has the 3.9 inch barrel, and comes with the safety, you can swap it into either the compact or carry grip frames that are set up to run with the safety. Both of those will work with the slide length it comes with i believe. And those basic frames from Sig are running around $37 right now online. I believe Wilson Combat and maybe others make after market grip frames as well, if you prefer those instead. I think those are going for $47-55 online. The funny thing is that the basic 10 round magazines we need for here in the People's Republic cost more than the grip frames do.
The thing that stops it fitting in specific grip modules is the safety, not the barrel/slide length. I have a every combo of slides, barrels and grip modules I can think of and a full size slide in an X Carry frame is the best looking one, but my comped compact slide in a full size with the DC cut down is pretty sweet too. Finding grip modules for use with a manual safety is a lot harder, but as has been mentioned in this thread, deleting the manual safety is cheap/easy.

If it makes you feel better, the mags are more expensive than the basic grip frames in every state. P320 mags are expensive, not sure why Mec Gar hasn't brought their own to market, their 226 mags are the bee's knees. Until then, grab an Icarus grip module, they'll make the mags look cheap by comparison

Since you seem to know your way around the 320 platform, would you say the price increase over the FA320 and the 2A Zone one that has the CW FCU/no manual safety is not worth the increase in price?

No, I commend 2AZ for doing it, but what you get from FA is a much better value IMHO. The Sig slide and barrel that come with the FA are likely a much better pair than the aftermarket parts 2AZ is using, (don't know who's aftermarket parts 2AZ is using, some are great, some are cheap for a reason) and if nothing else will have a higher resale value.

The 2AZ uses an OEM Sig grip module, so there's a chance you may be able to remove the sled, but that's only saving you $40, and even then only if you want the compact grip module anyway.
