Tex Weaver is working under cover to bring in a gang of bank robbers. When he is killed, Tim Ross, a marksman with Doc Shaw's traveling show, takes over. Posing as a Mexican he lays a trap for the gang.

Another one of those Tim McCoy western movies that seem to spring up like rabbits when looking up the history of the Western. In this one, he gets a job in a traveling medicine show (helping the man who runs it skirt the law at the beginning reel) and getting involved in helping to try to bust a series of bank robberies in the region. His past friend is a G-Man who has infiltrated the group is soon found out and dealt with.. Is Mccoy next? This film isn't all that bad. Tim McCoy certainly doesn't really rank with the best of the movie cowboys (well, #1 problem would be his hat), but he's somewhat entertaining, gets into a lot of wimpy looking fights (he throws his hat a weapon1 Ooh! Tough!) shoots his gun totally wrong and again treats us to his Mexican impersonation (like he did in Lighting Carson Rides Again). Good for some entertainment.
