I don't think the cover painting is by Morris Gollub - it doesn't resemble the work he produced at any time. Instead it looks like the work of George Rozen (1895-1973). He produced numerous covers for Western magazines, such as 'Masked Rider' (1934-1953), 'Range Riders' (1938-1953) and 'Rio Kid' (1939-1953). He usually signed his name at the bottom of his paintings, but this one may have been photographically cropped for printing. If the original survives it might settle the matter - his work now sells for high prices on the art market. May 1, 2017: Since my original post I've discovered something more about this cover. It's a reprint of the cover of the March 1943 issue of Dell's 'All Western Magazine'. It's been extensively cropped. But even the much fuller 1943 version has a broad yellow caption bar at the foot of the cover, and this may conceal the artist's signature. I remain convinced by the style that it's George Rozen's work. At least one other AWM cover - for December 1941 - appears to be Rozen's work as well, although no signature can be detected on that either. See The FictionMag Index website.
