'Caplock' or 'Percussion Lock' pistols were so called because the lock system causes a percussion cap to be struck by the hammer when the trigger is pulled. Powder inside the cap ignites and this in turn ignites the main powder charge, which propels a lead ball from the barrel. Most (though not all) caplock firearms were loaded from the muzzle of the gun (muzzle loaders). The Caplock was a great improvement over the flintlock as it was less susceptible to weather-related misfires.
