The benefit is that the decocker lever is not able to be left in the downward position. The pistol is ALWAYS ready and capable of trigger pull & BANG, assuming a magazine in place and a chambered round.

With typical S&W DA/SA 1-2-3rd Gen, the safety lever swept downward and left there leaves you with a pistol that effectively has an on/off switch with the switch left in the off position until you move it up to fire.

Myself, the traditional design doesn’t rile my feathers but in hindsight, a spring loaded decocker seems like a great upgrade and a better way to skin the cat.
