There's plenty of photos of for example Swiss MP43-44 with 50-round double stack magazine. Again from jaegerplatoon.net : "Both 50-round box magazines and 70-round drum magazines seems to have been exported with the weapons."
and


"PICTURE: Swiss Mp.43-44 submachine gun with 50-round box magazine. This was the de facto standard magazine type, which Tikkakoski delivered with the Suomi M/31 submachine guns, that it exported during World War 2."

It must be Suomi, just look at the stock with characteristic angle of semi-pistol grip. I feel stupid by saying it's Orita... Could benice to see the photo in higher res. I also compared lengths of the smg and Kar98k on the photo since both men are quite close, with lengths of real life guns and proportions looks ok.

According to Jaegerplatoon (http://www.jaegerplatoon.net/MACHINEPISTOLS1.htm) first permiit for export to Germany was given 12th of March 1942, but "Smaller deals were also done with customers like Polish State Police (20 Suomi submachine guns delivered in 1933)" and "Year 1940 French military had about 300 Suomi M/31 submachine guns, grand majority of these belonged to weapons confiscated from remains of Spanish Republican Army units, which had headed to France in end of Spanish Civil War." Considering that at the time Waffen SS had no priority in getting MP40, they had to get smg's from wherever they could. Maybe this is one of those French ones?

Yeah, you're right, I didn't noticed barrel shroud.

 

Anyone has any idea if this Vickers is modified with muzzle disk by Germans, or is it Dutch 7,92mm rebarrelled De zware mitrailleur M.18 No. 2?

Looks like Orita Md. 1941, although proportions looks to be a little bit weird.

it looks like they were shooting it when they took the picture. The bolt is cycling

Nope Seth, Dushka is open bolt gun, so bolt isn't cycling, it's ready to fire though.
