Texas Rangers Tex Wyatt (Dave O'Brien) and Jim Steele (James Newill) arrive in Thunder Gap as undercover Rangers to investigate the hijacking of supply wagons of food for the miners. They come to town as members of a medicine-wagon troupe headed by another Ranger, Panhandle Perkins (Guy Wilkerson). Tex discovers the offices of the Hard Rock Mining Company being robbed by Ed Ransom (Jack Ingram), owner of the local freight company. One of Ransom's gang slugs Tex and kills an official of the mining company. Ransom tells the townspeople he arrived at the scene too late to stop the robbery and the killing and blames Tex.Written by

This film from the PRC studio's Texas Ranger series finds Jim Newill, Dave O'Brien,
and Guy Wilkerson the Cal Shrum Band as Texas Rangers on yet another undercover mission.
The town of Thunder Gap is a mining community and there has been a systematic
string of robberies of food supplies for the miners. If it continues on into the
winter the miners will be forced off their claims.
My problem with this western is aside from the usual shoddiness of PRC films
in general that if you can't figure out who's behind all this you have to be about maybe 2 years old. Obvious the second the character is introduced.
Some forgettable cowboy ballads and a goodnatured rivalry between Newill
and O'Brien over the storekeeper's niece is about the remainder of this Texas
Ranger western from PRC.
