I am somewhat new to Colt revolvers so I have a question. I understand that the Colt Officers Model Target was made on both the "I" and "E" size frames. I am purchasing a 1948 vintage 22 cal OMT. Will that be an "I" or a "E" size frame?

Mike,
Someone else can correct me, the I and E frames are the same size. The difference is "I" frame has the firing pin in the frame, the 357, Python and Trooper. The "E" frame has firing pin on the hammer.
I believe the 22 would be called the "E" frame.
Enjoy your 22.
Tom

tge45 is absolutely correct. The E-/I-frame was the frame for most of the Colt double action revolver line for nearly ninety years. The models produced on that frame were: Army Special, Official Police, Officers Model, Camp Perry, Officers Model Target, Commando, Officers Model Special, Border Patrol, Officers Model Match, Marshal, Trooper, “357,” Python.
