This routine Western programmer has all the usual elements -- the stolen mine, the quick-on-the-draw hero, the wicked villain and his equally villainous gang, and the girl in need of rescuing. Peaceful Peters (William Fairbanks) befriends an old miner who is killed by badman Jim Blalock (Harry Lamont). Blalock has also stolen the guy's mine, called the Rainbow's End, which had been staked for "Buddy's gal." Peters sets out to do right by his pal, even though he has no clue as to the identity or the whereabouts of the girl. Blalock owns the dance hall where Mary Langdon (Evelyn Nelson) works, and he tries to frame Peters on a bank robbing charge. With his fast shooting, Peters shows Blalock and his gang who's really boss, and he rescues Mary from their evil clutches.
