Fans of Soldier of Fortune magazine will think they've been ambushed and blown away to heaven by Lone Wolf McQuade. Every conceivable type of portable weapon on the world market is tried out by the macho warriors on both sides of the law in this modern western [story by H. Kaye Dyal and B. J. Nelson], which pits Texas Ranger Chuck Norris and his cohorts against multifarious baddies who like to play rough.

Fans of Soldier of Fortune magazine will think they’ve been ambushed and blown away to heaven by Lone Wolf McQuade. Every conceivable type of portable weapon on the world market is tried out by the macho warriors on both sides of the law in this modern western [story by H. Kaye Dyal and B. J. Nelson], which pits Texas Ranger Chuck Norris and his cohorts against multifarious baddies who like to play rough.

Opening sequence, showing the grizzled Norris busting up a gang of Mexican horse rustlers, makes it clear that film’s primary source of inspiration is Sergio Leone.

Vile David Carradine is in the business of hijacking US Army weapons shipments and selling them to Central American terrorist groups. Norris and FBI agent Leon Isaac Kennedy finally locate Carradine’s secret airstrip, and after a setback there, track him down at a compound loaded with all manner of armaments.
