    It's known as a Sokolov wheel mount. It seems to be missing part of the mount for the gun, and I'm not sure about that shield. I have a feeling this is the mount for some other type of machine gun, rather than the M1910 Maxim.

    No.
    Not a Maxim base. In this case the wheels of the Maxim trolley are used to move a armoured shield.

    This is it!
    The shield, if needed, can only be installed when the gun is on the mount.
    Not all the 1910 Maxim's have drilled holes to install the shield.

    Holes? If you mean the ones for the pin to hold the spring clip, they all have those unless someone has buggered with it during a deactivation or some other sort of nonsense. The shield slips over the water jacket and the spring clip is engaged to keep the shield from moving once installed.
