http://www.bisgaardnielsen.dk/group.asp?group=90&sub=90 have an extremely rare Danish Krag, singel shot convertion in 11.44 x 53 caliber for sale, and since you have to ask for the price, you most likely cannot afford it :)

Click under "Rifles and pistols", and then # 20

It was converted to a single shot in 1951, to a then commonly available caliber in Greenland, the 11.44 x 53, to be used by the Danish military, dog sled patrol, "Sirius", in Northeastern Greenland, which primary occupation was to keep norwegian nationals away from Greenland, after the International Court in 1933 gave the Danish Government total soveriegn control of Greenland, and thus ended norwegian arctic imperialisme in Northeastern Greenland, in which Norway officially, annexed that part of Greenland as "Erik Roedes Land" in 1931, and in Germaniahamn, Easter Greenland, installed the sysselmand Helge Ingstad as an official, norwegian governor of "Erik Roedes Land", and then norwegian defence minister Vidkun Quisling treatened to use the norwegian navy to enforce this norwegian annexation of the most remote corner of North America, and of what the Danish government consideret to be their sovereign, colonial territory.

When Vidkun Quisling, during WW2 came to power, and with the help of the Nazi-German forces, he again attempted to colonize "Erik Roedes Land", by sending an expedition there, which unfortunately for him, was arrested by the patrolling american icebreakers.

The Danish military "Sirius" are still patrolling "Erik Roedes Land", and the many hundred, former norwegian "fangsthytter", (trappers cabin), along the "Erik Roedes Land" are now being restored by danish and norwegian volunteers.
