If I remember right, production class doesn't allow half cock, hence no decocker.
What the rule says is:
"A hammer is considered to be in the "hammer down" position when the hammer is placed there by pulling the trigger while manually lowering the hammer (manually decocking) or by activating the decocking lever if present. Manually decocking to the half-cocked position is not allowed and will result in the competitor being moved to Open division."

A CZ "D" goes to half cock when you activate the lever, which is acceptable but the gunsmiths don't like tinkering with them, so the Production shooters are pulling the trigger on the safety models.

A SIG-Sauer decocks to a rebounded position, kind of like a S&W revolver or old hammer shotgun. Not that you see many of them at matches.

The Beretta G looks pretty simple and I wonder why a 92X Production went with the thumb safety obliging you to manually lower the hammer. Because they were trying to attract CZ shooters who were used to doing it that way?
