Note the US rechambered and modified many of the Type 99's to .30-06 for South Korean police use. Very doubtful this would have been a "capture" and, if it even came from Korea...
...more likely a trade with some starving soul in Seoul for a can of SPAM. No North-Korean was using a Chinese-supplied Japanese-made Type 38 I'm pretty sure. Most likely 'grandad' didn't bash anything but his wallet out of $8 at a garage sale.
