Buck Jones (as Buck Roberts), Tim McCoy (as Tim McCall), and Raymond Hatton (as Sandy Hopkins) marshal their forces as "The Rough Riders". Their first mission is to help pretty Luana Walters (as Ruth Masters); the family's "Master's Stage Line" is being robbed by wicked Tris Coffin (as Steve Taggert) and his gang. Also, Ms. Masters' father has been killed by the gang.
The quick drawing folks at the Monogram studio took a look at rival Republic's unprecedented success with their "The Three Mesquiteers" series of films and took action, producing a couple of "Threesomes" of their own. From the "Top 10 Western Box Office Star" lists, Monogram employed Mr. Jones, Mr. McCoy, and "Mesquiteer" Raymond Hatton as "The Rough Riders". Given the western star power, "Arizona Bound" is surprisingly dull.
