Mum ground off means it wasn't captured, but surrendered after the war. At wars end the Japanese were allowed to grind off the Mum before surrendering the rifles ( They might have even come from a ware house and never been issued. ). This was never done in the field , Japanese infantry man did not carry a potable grinders in there back pack.
