Please help me ID the smith

I work part time at a gunshop. One of the older gentlemen that works there took in a gun from a friend. It's been sitting for a while, so I put it on layaway while I did a little research. Any ideas on the smith who did the work? The owner was from the Western NY area if that helps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Ben

I don't know who worked it over, but the work done looks to be first class, certainly for its time, weld on the trigger guard looks good, interestin' way of mountin' Bo Mars.....Have you pulled the slide and looked underneath for any markin's?

My guess...pistolsmithing by one of the early pioneers and legends in pistolsmithing, retired mastersmith, Austin Behlert!
