Did a little checking, FIE is Firearms Import Export,and I found a few Pistols that were close,but not exact,they were 44cal Army and Navy Issue Cap and Ball Revolver`s,but with this Pistol having Rifelings and the "Black Powder Only " stamped on the barrel,I feel this is cheap Replica of the older guns.

Now does anyone know if the mesurements I gave match a 44cal.........or does anyone know how to find a conversion chart from Inches to Cal. Size ?

Any help would be fantastic :D

It is a cheap replica of the Remington model 1858 Army/Navy revolver.

Yours is a brass frame model 1858 revolver.

You are correct also that it is a .44 caliber revolver.

BTW, it is supposed to have rifling.

Bass Pro shop sells them brand new for $250.00

Pistolero is dead on as always. The give away is "black powder only stamped on the pistol". A vintage pistol of this era wouldn't have that as black powder was all that was available for the pistol.

FWIW, I used to really enjoy shooting a revolver like this - I believe yours was imported from Italy in the 1960's - 1970's.
