It has an excellent beginning and a good final part but what is in between makes little sense, logically: Berger-Sartana frees from prison three brothers to lead him to gold stolen from the army. The problem is that he does nothing to prevent them from table turning on him and when he escapes from death there is this long sequence of him stealing guns from them while the two survivors (he has killed one)  get ahold of all the horses. So Berger starts wandering in the "desert" (well, kinda) haunted by them who, instead  of making it home and get the hidden loot and make themselves scarce, insist on wanting to get back their guns which Berger (for no apparent reason) carries with him. Still, even thanx to the good actors (Preston and Berti) and a couple of good-looking females (unexpected the episode with the woman rescuing Berger) it earns a good 6/10. The OST by Martelli is under par for his usual good standards.
