    here we go info on the Maxim 1910 heavy machine gun(source is infantry weapons of WW2 by jan suermont)
    caliber:7.62mm
    length:43.6inches(1.11m)
    system of operation:maxim toggle block(recoil)
    ROF:550 rpm
    feed system:250 round fabric belt
    (the gun was mounted on a Sokolov wheel cart designed for the gun so it was easier to move because it weighed 52bl 8oz(23.8kg)

    No it's not original but the fella shooting it said it mounted up with no modifications.
