Adding a mag cut off to an 870?

OK, do not yell at me. It's just a thought I had while tinkering with a couple of Chinese parts guns I picked up recently. At first glance it appears doable. And I'd rather butcher an already less-than-pristine Chinese receiver in the attempt as opposed to a real 870.

But in an admittedly not extensive internet search I found nuthin'. No indication anyone has even tried this. So...nobody wanted to thrash a good receiver? Or there's a reason it can't be done that I didn't see? It looks like there's a perfectly good 5/8ths of an inch of receiver/tube overlap I could bore and oversize safety button on. Or any number of other things even if I had to make the inner contact piece... Thoughts?
