Also called cock on closing and cock on return stroke. These are interesting to me. I don't know how the cocking mechanism works, though. There is a low resolution rendering of one model HERE. Anyone know of a better detailed photo or explanation of how this system works? Maybe a list of all the Daisy models that used reverse cocking? I read a thread somewhere about this but it wasn't clear to me.

It is mystery to me as well. Looking forward to the answer.

Another question is WHY? Some models were made both ways.

Gary, it must be a mystery to the community at large and not just us, judging by the lack of responses!
 
The question of "why" is also interesting. Maybe it was an attempt to keep the lever from slamming closed on kids' fingers?

May have been a way to decrease the cocking effort for a kid. 
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

I have a super buzz barton 103 which is reverse cocking. I know the plunger case connects to the sear when cocked and on the return the sliding block is pushed forward to put full tension on the mainspring. Not sure if it clicks in place or the lever holds it in place. I am going to install new seals soon so I'll find out exactly how it works.

The lever actually holds the sliding block in place to complete the cocking.
