I was thinking since the AMU developed the round that they got most of the AMU kits, commercial smiths were using the 38 Special MR kits, but sheer speculation on my part. The US NM type front sight, Elliason rear sight and Ithaca frame give it more of a military origin feel to it.

Thanks for the input!
