Wayde Preston played Chris Colt – a big, rugged fellow who travelled the West, apparently as a gun salesman. Secretly, though, he was a government agent.

Wayde walked off the set after a dispute with producers and was replaced by Donald May, who was introduced as Christopher Colt’s cousin, Sam Colt Jr.

Preston and the studio eventually settled their differences and he returned for what would turn out to be the final episodes, which featured both Colt cousins.

The series aired as The Colt Cousins in the UK.
