Operating out of Fort Scott in Los Flores, New Mexico in the 1860s, titular gunslinger Cord (Tony Young) worked undercover with the Army solving situations that the US cavalry – trying to maintain law and order – found too hot to handle politically.

The cavalry officially washed its hands of Cord, maintaining distance and deniability in case of trouble. He received his assignments in secret and executed them fearlessly, posing as a gunfighter.

Captain Zachary Wingate (Preston Foster) was Cord’s superior. His fellow undercover agents were Pico McGuire (Charles H. Gray), Billy Urchin (Dee Pollock) and Sgt Major Murdock (John Pickard).

Fiery and tough Amby Hollister (Midge Ware) carried a torch for Cord.
