I read an old article by John Taffin in which he makes many mentions of Russell Simpson who was Head Gunsmith for AWA and in charge of US production of those guns. Taffin also mentions Jim Martin on several occasion in that article. He also made the following statement about our own Jim Martin:

Martin is a well-known sixgunsmith and pistolero par excellence and in fact was the gunsmith who brought the pair of Great Western sixguns featured on the cover of the first GUNS in January 1955 and written up by me in the 50th anniversary issue in January 2005 to shooting perfection.

In the article he credited Jim Martin with working his magic on some AWA single actions that were made.

Any thoughts or guesses on who did the engraving? It appears to be of Master quality and I read that Adams and Adams did some engraving for AWA. This could certainly be work done by one of the Adam's.
