Sir my understanding, or rather what can be seen in period imagery there are at least 5 variants for the MG08/15. The 3 standard and then 2 'armourer' or 'field altered' - there may be more!

Yes those are NZ troops but the original image is from their official war photograph archives. Not sure if it can be sold? Anyway the round disc that is seen on the muzzle booster assembly is a flash dispenser.

Does any one know what the disc attached to the end of the barrel is for?
Flash suppressor for the gunner during operation in subdued light.

"German machine gun nest and its dead. For miles such scenes could be seen on the battlefield as the Americans passed through the German lines. Bellicourt, Aisne at the Hindengerg Line. France. Oct. 13th, 1918."
