Both locks in the photo, these are the locks from the machine gun Maxim 1910. Both of these locks were released at the Tula Arms Plant. This is evidenced by the stamp in the form of a hammer. The left lock was released earlier and therefore it has the mark in the form of a large hammer. The right lock was released later and it has the mark in the form of a small hammer. This can be understood by the numbers on the locks.
In my opinion, the left castle was released around 1913, the right one in 1916-1917.
Regarding the "double-headed eagles", I unfortunately can not say anything. I have no data, since such parts of machine guns are very rare.
The photo of the Finns shows a muzzle cover on the floor in front of the gun, how early did these appear?
Could you share a photo or link to a photo. Maybe someone will help.
Thank you much for the information regarding the locks it is very helpful.
