Ranger Bob Steele goes after the bandit who killed his colleague in this low-budget oater from Supreme Pictures Corp., which was picked up for distribution by Republic. When Dave Austin learns that Apache Joe (Ted Adams) is the killer of Ranger Carson (Julian Madison), he pretends to be an outlaw himself, and, with the assistance of Jean Drury (Marion Weldon), the innocent sister of one of the gang members, manages to capture not only Apache Joe, but also his boss, supposedly law-abiding businessman Martin Rand (Forrest Taylor). In the end, it is Jean's brother Dan (Rex Lease) who saves Dave's life by taking a bullet meant for the ranger. Grizzled Budd Buster provided a bit of comedy relief and the entire package came courtesy of low-rent producer A.W. Hackel.
