Where's the captured weapon(s)?

Nice photo, I haven't seen that one before!

That's ALOT of SVT-40s there, and the surrounding landscape looks very Baltic coastal.

PPSh-41

Was this the most commonly used Soviet weapon captured by the German front-line soldier?

Nice photo. I'm not familiar enough with uniform types/trends to guess when this was taken, but it seems that the majority of German-captured SVT photos were taken early in Brabarossa. This would suggest something later than that.

I believe these are RAD recruits drilling with Model 1891 Mosin-Nagant rifles. The NCO appears to have a RAD type cap, but I'm not familiar enough with uniform types to say definitively. The Mountain qualification badge on the left side of the cap seems incongruous with RAD's central mission, though...

My best guess is the aircraft version of the Russian 7.62 nadashkievitsch Пв-1 mg.

These two photos are from an expired eBay auction and were posted above in the 'Italian Vehicles in German Service' thread. Further attribution is in the watermark. Aside from some SMGs pictured, note the use of captured Italian Carcano Model 1941 rifles in these two photos. There are a number of similar ones in Bundesarchiv Foto collection showing similar Ordnungspolizei units fielding these, putting the date at some time from September 1943 on.
