Default J frame hand size

I know that K,L,N hand normal size is around .093 - .095, and an oversize hand is .096 - .098 or so.

The question is: what is the normal size range for a J frame hand, and then what would be considered the range for an oversize hand?

In my experience, standard J frame hands usually run from .072"- .075". Oversized (5594-01) J hands are .076" - .079".

What are the reference points for measuring a hand?

The hand should be measured at the top, across the full width of the "tooth"....the point of interface with the cylinder ratchet.
