Default Need/want info on old F.I.E rimfire wheelgun.

Goog'd this gun that I inherited from Dad. Never had seen it before, odd? Finaly cleaned & looked it up. This one is E15 .22LR FIE Miami #16325 stamped made in Italy. It has a loading port and is in the "model" of a Peacmaker style revolver. Photo above seems to be sim. Good thight little shooter. Thinking of re-bluing and need wood grip options, these are plastic.

I had one of these years ago. The ones that work are great, the ones that don't are paperweights. FIE did little or no quality control on these, the big problems often seen were excessive cylinder to barrel gap, and poor timing, causing the cylinder to mis-align with the barrel making it spit lead and send the slugs spinning off sideways out of the barrel. FIE kept the cost down by making the frame out of zinc, which made their larger caliber guns somewhat fragile, but worked fine for .22 - If I could find one that shot well, I would definitely buy it, its a great bargain plinker. I may just buy a pair for my twin sons.
