pretty much for $100 the only shotgun your going to get is an H&R 410 shotgun, a norinco 870 clone (which you dont want they have issues), or a Used shotgun.
Up your limit abit to around 200 and you get into abit more designs of single shots that are 12 gauge.

The Nork 780 Homeland Security sell for quite cheap but I've heard they are nothing but trouble. Stay clear of those, I'd suggest.

My 2 Nork 870 clones (HP9 with 14.5" barrel) have worked out really quite well except I can't find a replacement front sight for them and they're pretty rough on the inside.

The screw in mag cover and front sight, by my understanding aren't threaded to the same spec as an 870, but everything else fits on it fine (ATI stocks, fore ends, side saddles, elevated scope mount, and an antique fish-bowl reflex site I got from a friend for $50).

One has +500 shells through it, no problem.

Out of the box, my second one had feeding problems (shells sticking in the tube, not chambering properly), but that was a cleaning problem. I used a solvent to try to cleanout the cosmoline from the tube mag, but left if quite wet. After I cleaned it up, the feeding problems went away.

My Dominion Arms Backpacker for $150 worked fairly well, but I had to hockey tape the forend on to keep it from falling off when I shot slugs out of it. I think it's quite quaint, in a hillbilly redneck sort of way - it's more of a novelty than anything.

You could also consider a used cooey. They were made under different names for different company's, and can be found easily for around 100 bucks. Quite possibly a better gun used than the inexpensive new ones, IMO, for what that's worth. That's what I made my grousegetter out of.

Remington also made some nice singles but they're harder to come across.

Single shot Cooey, however, more than your suggested budget: http://www.shootist.ab.ca/dsht1.html

How about a bolt action? http://www.shootist.ab.ca/dsht39.html

These days used single shot shotguns that should be $50-$100 are $150 and up.

Buy a new H&R Partner for $129.95 (all gauges 12-28) and consider it money well spent.

COOEY. I paid $125 for mine, but it looked brand new - only good looking gun at the show.

x3 on the H&R - good, cheap and accurate.

Look for a Stoeger or IGA Reuna. Compatible with Winchokes, comes in 12,16,20 and .410 . I was lucky enough to be started on one. Worth about 120$ brand new.

What do you plan to do with a single shot? PM me and we'll talk ... as I may have something you may want to try out? ;)
