AR Float Tube on Savage Barrel Nut?

Hi Guys,

I am day dreaming of a project and am unsure if it is possible. I'm looking into the possibility of building a bull pup chassis for a 10/110 Savage based rifle. I am thinking that given the number of AR15 free float tubes on the market, I might be able to integrate one for the forend of the chassis.

So the question is this, could a barrel nut with 1.05"x20tpi thread be fashioned to accept an AR15 barrel nut with 1.25"x18tpi? I am just unsure whether or not there would be enough material to maintain the integrity of the nut?

Thanks all and God bless!
