Federal Agent 'Lightning' Bill Carson (Tim McCoy) is on the trail of a gang of outlaws who robbed a train carrying half a million dollars in government bonds, killing an agent in the process. Gang leader Brainard murders one of his men after he reveals where he hid the stolen bonds on a ranch up for auction. Carson goes undercover as rancher Sam Brown to fight Brainard for ownership of the ranch.
With Tim McCoy advertised as one of the fastest guns in Hollywood in the late 1930's, there are plenty of fast gunfights and action scenes to highlight McCoy's prowess with a gun.
