Seven Guns for the MacGregors (Italian: ''Sette pistole per i MacGregor'') is a Technicolor 1966 Italian spaghetti western. It is the directorial debut film of Franco Giraldi (here credited as Frank Garfield), who was Sergio Leone's assistant in A Fistful of Dollars.[1] The film gained a great commercial success and generated an immediate sequel, Up the MacGregors!, again directed by Giraldi[1] [2] and a later sequel More Dollars for the MacGregors.


The MacGregors, horse ranchers of Scottish descent, are underway to the market when they are robbed of their horses by a gang under the helm of a corrupt sheriff. One of the brothers infiltrates the gang but his first attempt tries to play them backfires.
