Does anyone know if it would be possible to use a Saiga 12 with a MG47 type project to create a belt felt shotgun?

Well, the MG47 uses existing parts from another gun to convert the AKM. While it is theoretically possible, you would have to make all the parts for the conversion, including the belt.
Also, if ATF decides they don't like the idea of a beltfed 12 guage, all it takes is a ruling and it becomes a Destructive Device.
Plus shot shells have a rim that would inhibit push through feeding.

but if the feed was like the m2 it could pull the round back then send it forward and down?????
Sure but the ak47 was push through. Feed mechanisms are very different

Yeah the rimmed shell is the problem, you'd have to copy the 1919, Maxim/Vickers or PKM setup that pulls the shell from the belt then drops it into the chamber.

If it can be made to work it would be interesting to shoot.
