Default An Eibar couple with patilla locks

I got my first two muzzle loaders, very interesting pieces, they were sleepers coming from a miniature village at the Leon mountains. Seller says they were always in the family.

I am completely inexperienced with these. They are in good condition, but unattended for 100 years.

There is rust under the barrels, but I do not know how to dismantle them at the front. After removing the tang screw nothing moves. There shall be a retainer somewhere. Lock was easy though.

Plan is, for steel, mineral oil for the active rust with a touch of 000 steel wool and then renaissance wax. For the wood linseed oil, and then bee wax plus carnauba wax in turpentine.
