Default machine gun carriage

Here's an interesting Vickers or Maxim carriage that's on ebay that's not getting any bids.

Default It shouldn't...

...it's a Russian mount for a Russian Maxim. The Gun is scarcer than the mount. Both are ugly.

Its a Sokolov Mount for a Russian Maxim Machine Gun.

The top turntable section may be WW1 production but not the wheeled base.

I collect these in the unlikely event anyone on this forum has anything interesting. I am particularly looking for a 1905 pattern brass jacketed example.
