Anthony Steffen plays Arizona Colt, replacing Montgomery Wood (Giuliano Gemma). Arizona and his pal Double Whiskey (Roberto Camardiel), reprising his role from the first film) are still hanging together, and Arizona is still a bounty hunter. He soon finds out that there's a bounty on his head, for a stagecoach robbery that he had nothing to do with. The real culprit was a bandito with the oddly Anglicized name of "Keene" (Aldo Sambrell), who's apparently had some sort of grudge against Colt for a while. Keene's also been plotting to steal the gold from a local rancher, whose daughter he is secretly involved with. Arizona is captured by the townspeople and hanged (although due to a crafty trick with a wire, he survives). He then goes on a trail of revenge and wipes out Keene and his gang in typical spaghetti fashion. By the time this film was made the serious westerns of the genre had been replaced by comedies and this falls in between the two. Not bad for a Steffen western but not even close to the Gemma original.
