Your "Demil" Krag barrel is actually a legitimate U.S. martial variation.

A small number of Krag rifles were "rendered unsuitable for firing" by the Army prior to donation to veterans groups for ceremonial use. This involved drilling out the chamber to about the same diameter as the bolt.

Of course, unless someone thinks that is a cool and exotic variation needed for their advanced collection, that really hurts the value.
