During the Korean War the North Korean Army was equipped with the Soviet 7.62mm M 1891 Mosin Nagant rifle and its later variants—the M1891/30 rifle and the M1938 and M1944 carbines. Quantities of Japanese World War II 7.7mm type 99 rifles were also encountered, principally in the hands of Communist guerrillas. North Korea made 7.62mm PPSh M1941 submachine guns during the Korean War and is now making the AK-47 assault rifle.
