Japan left a lot of material. So did the Russians after WW2.
Did the NK use any leftover Japanese and Russian weaponry.<<
Yes. Most frontline NK troops when the war began were equipped with
Russian weapons -- Russian rifle, Russian carbine (bolt action 7.62mm,)
PpSh (burpgun), pistols, to say nothing of T-34 tanks, Su-76 SP guns and
Russian artillery. Second echelon and support troops generally had a mix
of Japanese and Russian weapons.
