They were not produced in prison camps. Some factories used slave/forced labor, they changed to a laminate stock in mid 1941, yes as wood was scarce and the Laminate was better for wet weather. Every K98 made during the war had matching numbers on every part, barrels went through 3 separate inspections. That was their problem, they were so anal. There are instances of Lugers that were sabotaged in the manufacturing process, not K98's. For years after the war K98 receivers have been used to make fine hunting rifles. Parker Hale in Britain was famous for their Mauser sporters using wartime receivers.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
