Badmen hide behind badges

When an idealistic young man comes to Montana territory to start a new life, he becomes a deputy sheriff. He wants to clean up the area which is infested with killers and thieves, but is duped into aiding those very men. Good action yarn with lots of blazing sixguns, stagecoach chases, and thundering hooves.
