Smith & Wesson has produced revolvers over the years in several standard frame sizes. M refers to the small early Ladysmith frame , I to the small .32 frame , J to the small .38 frame , K to the medium .38 frame , L to the medium large .38 and .44 Magnum frame , and N to the largest .44 Magnum type frame .
