I know this is an old post I'm replying to but in searching for information on the Navy Arms Rem 1858 cased set this post popped up. I purchased this set this past weekend and can find little to no information on the net so far. I did find the RPRCA site and a photo of this set
The revolver, case & case lining are identical but contents of my set differ slightly. Instead of nipple wrench I have molded bullets and instead of the can of what I would assume is percussion caps or grease I have two keys.
Is there a particular website or book that would detail things such as date of manufacture, number of sets produced, etc? I would appreciate any help with information or direction to research.
