Just confirming no issues with (mine anyway) 2018 made P01 Omegas.

When I picked it up I saw it was this years model.  It had the decocker levers installed from the factory.  No outward movement/loss of the decocker when pushed from the right side.  In fact, I had to use the tip of the plastic cleaning rod to get the left side lever moving out of the frame so I could finish pulling it out when I installed the safeties.  It was pretty tight (don't know if that was in the frame/spring or the right side decocker).

I did run into and issue with the left side safety install.  I tried several times to get it to correctly install (fully insert) and had no luck.  I was still trying to figure out why it wouldn't go in all the way when it hit me I had the 2016 Urban Gray P01 in the basket by my recliner.  I grabbed it, unloaded it, pulled the left side safety out and it snapped right into place in the 2018 pistol.  I then grabbed the 2018 left side safety lever and it snapped into place in the 2016 P01.

There's a reason why things just don't fit well sometimes and in just 0.00X of an inch so it's pretty tough to see - but it let's you know it exists.  Nope, I didn't pull things apart again and begin measuring.  I just loaded the 2016 pistol up, put it back in the basket and took the 2018 pistol to the table to clean/lube it before putting it back together for some dry fire practice/break in before it's first range session.  Man, I really like the say that thing feels in my hand.  Hard to believe those little grooves in the front/rear of the frame/grip would make that much difference over my Compacts.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.
