I found this one at surplus store, its 26' long has two separate pockets for mags. Does anyone have an idea what gun this bag is for?

That is an M60 barrel bag.
They work well for Subguns.
I got one a while back and it came with this cool accessory.Attached File  image.jpg   142.4K   19 downloadsAttached File  image.jpg   135.71K   18 downloads

As others have pointed out, a M60 spare barrel carrier.  I have been using one of those with my MP40 for over 30 years, they hold up well however I will caution you not to store a gun in one, they tend to sweat on the inside in high humidity.

I never known of these and just got one as I think it would be perfect to carry the gun and various parts like magazines or silencers

Heed the caution about storing guns or parts long term in the bags. they don't breath, and depending where you store it the bags will sweat, and cause rust. Lots of good M60 barrels ruined as a result -  but these make decent range bags.  Zero padding though..

Make sure to scrub it out good if you find a surplus one ,  some of those magical asbestos mitts didn't hold out too well.
