This is not the same company as Firearms International, Inc. of Houston. Firearms International, Washington, DC, doesn't get much space in the reference books since they didn't manufacture many guns, mostly imported rather inexpensive pieces. The country of origin should be marked someplace on the barrel or receiver. Most utility single shot .410's in working condition are worth $75 to $125, but since it will be difficult to find repair parts if these should break, it may be hard to sell for half that much.
Impossible to answer without more information and what you think "cocking indicator" means.
"cocking" translates to, "armamento" in Italian.

Your DW is worth $150 in absolutely mint shape to a collector. They were poorly crafted firearms and the cocking mechanism was prone to early wear.
The serial number is hidden on the frame under the grip. Removal of the grips will expose the s/n of you gun,then it can be dated. A great source of information on Iver Johnson firearms is The book "Iver-Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Firearms 1871-1993" by W. Goforth
"cockin' on ya" means you are cocking your gun on someone, like you are going to kill them
Winchester but I'm not sure exactly what model. The Winchester has a cocking lever built into the trigger guard. His rifle had a modified cocking lever that was larger and allowed fast cocking.
That would be the trigger on most firearms, the slide on an automatic pistol, and the hammer on either an automatic pistol or a revolver. You also pull back the bolt on a rifle, and sometime the cocking mechanism on a shotgun.
cocking a gun is when you pull the slide of a gun back and forwards once to get a bullet into the chamber to fire

Marksman doesn't list the cocking effort but believe me it's very little. The pistol only fires a 220 FPS and that is slow.

First, I think you mean Meriden. In the early 1900s, Winchester refused to sell guns to Sears, claiming that their discounted prices harmed the firearms industry. This left Sears looking for a supplier of guns. The Meriden Firearms Company was formed when Sears Roebuck purchased the Andrew Fyrberg & Sons firearms manufacturing plant and moved the plant and machinery to Meriden, Connecticut in 1905. The company started manufacturing firearms mid 1905. In 1918 Sears announced that the Meriden Firearms Company would discontinue the manufacture of sporting firearms. Meriden Firearms represented a selection of good-quality, relatively low-cost firearms of which many survive in operational condition more than 100 years later. The shotguns were well made and available in several grades. All had automatic safeties and cocking indicators. Barrels could be had in twist, damascus of several grades, armory steel or Krupp steel. Hammerless or hammer shotguns with varying amounts of engraving were available. Most were side by side double barreled shotguns.
Until @ 1978
In England we call it 'cocking' their leg.
