Japanese Cavalry Carbine bring back

I just purchased this group to a Navy guy from the USS Tangier. They pulled / months of occupation duty in late 1945. The best part of the group in my opinion is the fact that everything on the capture paper I received and it wasn’t split up. The history of Tangier is awesome in my opinion in that not only was she at Pearl Harbor for the attack but shot down 3 confirmed zeros. My question is was this same guy at Pearl Harbor during the attack? Does anyone have access to the muster rolls to check for me?

I was watching this set, and thought long and hard about buying it, but I had some other items taking up the funds. Really neat. I like capture papers with the rifle numbered on them. It's fairly standard practice during the war, but post war you rarely see numbered papers for a rifle.

Where abouts in NYS are you located? I'm in the Southern Tier.

This is my first Japanese rifle with mum removed but I don’t see many cavalry versions with them. The extractor and firing pin do not match but the rest do. I don’t bump into many all matching either on these prewar carbines.

NO EXPERT . I have seen Type 44's often, almost all have had the flower defaced . They are a very well made piece .
