Nova 5+1?

Has anyone modified their Nova or SuperNova to fit five 2-3/4" shells in the mag tube? My SuperNova is about a 1/16" short of being able to stuff a fifth shell if I remove the mag tube snap ring (I despise these snap rings and prefer to remove them so I can remove the hunting plug easily and also run a patch down the mag tube when I clean the barrel). it is so close I can loosen the barrel nut just slightly and five will fit. the shells measure right at 2-1/4" which I believe to be normal right? Because 2-3/4" is before getting crimped. so if I was to mill out either the follower or the barrel nut or cut one or two coils off the spring (I do not want to do this) it would be possible to have a 5+1 SuperNova. the other option would be to create a washer / spacer to go under the barrel nut but then that would deactivate the ratchet detent. but wait the perfect spacer already exists! and it has the detent made into it.


I can not be the only person to discover this guns hidden ability. is there anyone else who has done this?
