    You want to extend the tube magazine, or convert the gun to use a
    box magazine?

    Extended tube--possible. They do it on shotguns all the time. It would
    probably extend to a foot in front of the muzzle.

    Box magazine conversion--also possible. Machine out the reciever,
    fabricate a magazine catch and probably some feed rails, build from
    scratch or convert an existing magazine.

    Bring your checkbook, neither option is going to be cheap.:)

    It's possible but not practical to extend the mag tube on a Savage model 170. Like it's already been mentioned, it won't be very cheap.
