Good question

Not a stupid question at all and in fact, very important when dealing with doubles and their evolution and variants. Basically it's the position/location of the locks, in relation to the barrels. ...

Reference;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxlock_action

Also, if you have an NRA fact book, you will find an excellent and detailed explaination on both. It would be short changing your question if one just listed Hammer and Hammerless ....

Be Safe !!!
