Hi Sturm78, this device for fixing MG to a wood pole it is a 1WW M.G. Hilfslafette/Grabenlafette.
See picture from Polish manual and few pictures. It was designed for MG 08 but in set were also bands in sizes to mount other country (captured) water cooled hmg's.

Hard to find clear images, the M1921 had the simple cocking mechanism of the M1917/M1919 series and a muzzle cap/booster than was similar. most all the US guns were modified to M1921A1 standard with the compound cocking mechanism and a Maxim/Vickers style muzzle booster cap.

Later they were modified again with an entirely new water jacket as the M2 series (which itself was modified a few times)
