Both appear to be pre-WW2 military Mauser 98 actions. As far as restoring them, if they were heated during the fire (this can be verified by the presence of "scale" on the metal parts) they will have to be heat treated. They do not look like they have been overheated, so they are probably OK.

Set triggers are designed so if you want a really light trigger (read "touch and it goes off") you can pull the front trigger and it "sets" the rear trigger.
You "set" a set trigger by pulling the rear trigger, and fire it with the front trigger. Or you can fire it without "setting" the trigger by pulling the front trigger.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
