I and J frame grip frame size does not vary with frame size and are in fact the same for pre 1953 I and J frames.

With the introduction of the Model of 1953 NEW I and NEW J frames, both I and J frames had their grip frame sizes lengthened 1/8", but again they are the same new length and size. And their cyl frame sizes remained different.
