It looks to me that you've used InfR I for organisation 1941 ?

The thing I like to highlight is that late 1942 the availability of SMG's where getting twice as common as the BAR, so most field units during 1942 started to arm assistant squadleaders with SMG's too.

Huskvarna came up to a monthly delivery ~3 000 guns from early 1941, a pace they then keept trough the war.
so by end of 1942 42 000 SMG's where available in total.

Attached an appendix from Ammunition handbook 1942 listing weapon TOE.
