Default Artist Mole's Barrel Cooling Device ??

Ran across this reference (with diagram) to a device invented for the '03 rifle. The reference was in a very uncomplimentary review of the new(?) M1 Garand in the May 1940 issue of American Rifleman which later in the year resulted in the resignation of Charles Askins Jr. from his life membership in the NRA because of the "criticism of functional and manufacturing difficulties encountered with the Garand rifle".

Has anyone seen a real life version of this device?
