Thank you tocayo,
To avoid misunderstandings, the attribution of the "Fecho de Molinhas" name is not due to external parts of such lock system but to a specific 'playing' of its internal sears (muelles) and rods (as per attached drawing, positions #9 and #10).
The hammer type in this blunderbuss i am posting we call it here "goat's foot" (pie de cabra).
