In the town of Limerick ruled by Bear Bullock and his gunman Killer Kissick they enforce a rule of terror without equal in the Wild West. After a number of gunmen hired by the townspeople fail to stand up to Bullock, Meriwether P. Newberry, a mild-mannered travelling inventor, comes to town with his latest invention a robot named “The Bang Bang Kid”. With the help of the townspeople and the mechanical man they try and turn the medieval rule of Bullock back to normal. Problems develop when the robot continues to break-down just before the fateful showdown with Kissick. Meriwether puts on Bang-Bang’s clothes and faces Kissick alone. The town recognizes his bravery and how they are cowards. They stand-up and join Newberry and chase Bullock and his gang out of town.
