Richard M. Cutts

The following obituary appears in the January, 1935 issue of American Rifleman magazine:
Colonel Richard M. Cutts, United States Marine Corps, well known to both rifle and shotgun shooters as co-inventor of the Cutts Compensator, died at his home in San Diego, California, on November 24th, after a long illness. Colonel Cutts served as an Ensign in the Navy during the Spanish-American War, and was appointed to the Marine Corps in 1899. While always more interested in the theoretical problems of shooting than in contending at the targets himself, Colonel Cutts' contribution of the compensator to the shooting game will assure him a permanent place in the shooters' Hall of Fame, in company with such pioneers as Schultz, Forsyth, Henry, Colt, Browning, and others.
