Storyline

Frank Nitti and Bugs Moran are about to go to war, and to forestall that possibility, Elliot Ness and the Untouchables begin rounding up every machine gun owned by the gangsters' hitmen. To resupply himself, Nitti hires Polish gunsmith Jan Trobek to make a dozen Tommy guns. Unfortunately for Trobek and his wife, Nitti and Moran soon settle their differences, which means that the pair are now witnesses who could turn into liabilities for Nitti.

Al Capone is off in Florida and as gangland lore has it, to give him an alibi for the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Now Bugs Moran has gotten himself a load of Thompson submachine guns that can be purchased at any sporting goods store, no questions asked. Then a law got passed banning those but Frank Nitti running things for Capone has been cut short.

So Bruce Gordon as Nitti makes a temporary truce with Robert J. Wilke as Moran. In the meantime he has Karl Swenson come to him with a semi- automatic weapon that he says a gunsmith cousin from Poland can turn into a fully automatic item, just what the syndicate needs.

Frank Nitti is no fool and he turns the cousin Kevin Hagen and his wife Salome Jens into virtual slaves turning out those weapons so he can double cross Moran and wipe him out permanently.

Of course Robert Stack and his squad are on the hunt for the arsenals of both gangs.

Not a bad episode especially in light of today's gun control debate.
