No, this is not MG01, this is MG08 on a MG01 mount.
MG01 looks different from the outside.

I'm 100% not sure, but I think that this is a modernized tripod from the French machine gun Puteaux APX M1905.
It was also used for the French machine gun St. Étienne Mle 1907.

Maybe I'm wrong, but this is my personal opinion))

Hi Hisname,

It is possible that you are right but the legs seem shortened...
