Duff Gregor camps with Silvertip and both men notice how much they look alike. Gregor later meets up with Barry Christian, Silvertip's greatest enemy, and the pair come up with a plan where Gregor will disguise himself as Silvertip and fool the people of Crow's Nest before robbing their bank. Silvertip then rides into town, not knowing what has happened, and gets a hostile reception.
