Synopsis for "Ambush!"
Kid Colt is camping out for the night when he hears some men approaching his camp on horseback. Going to investigate he is suddenly surrounded by a gang of bandits who easily get the drop on him and take him prisoner. Kid Colt is taken to outlaw leader Pepito Chavez who has come to force the Kid to assist him in robbing a wagon train of supplies bringing rifles and ammunition to a nearby army fort, he has come to get Kid Colt as the Kid knows the region well enough.
Refusing to help, Kid Colt is locked in a cell until he decides to play along at least until he finds a way to prevent the bandits from stealing the guns. He leads them to a nearby pass where they spot the wagons, but Kid Colt warns them against ambushing it as it will draw the soldiers attention and give away their position and suggests riding ahead to Powder Canyon where they can ambush the wagon train. Along the way, they stop by a nearby river and Kid Colt notices plenty of rounded red stones and realizes he can make use of them.
Eventually Pepito becomes impatient and they continue to ride the rest of the way. When the wagon train begins to pass into the area in the morning Chavez orders his men to attack only to be suddenly ambushed by American soldiers. Realizing that Kid Colt somehow betrayed him, Pepito tries to draw on the hero, but the Kid knocks him off his horse and they fight it out as the soldiers wipe out Pepito's gang of bandits. Pepito is defeated and he and his surviving men are taken prisoner. As he is being led away Pepito asks how the soldiers could have known about their ambush. The commanding officer tells Chavez that Kid Colt wrote the word "Ambush" with red rocks along the trail tipping them off with enough time to get reinforcements and launch a counter attack. The commander then thanks Kid Colt for his help, offering him the reward for Chavez's capture, but the Kid refuses telling the soldiers to split it among themselves.
