I would look at a Benelli Nova or Mossberg 500. The new Remington 870's rust extremely easy. I know I know. I said something bad about an 870, and I'm probably going to get replies saying "I've had ma grand pappies 870 since I was 12 and I took it out to the fields everyday for 35 years and I had it out in the mud n' snow a lot and it ain't never rusted.". It happens all the time when I say that but people seem to not see where I typed "the new 870's". Their quality (the finish in particular) has dropped a lot in recent years.

Synthetic Rem 870 Express and a can of OD spray paint. Doubles as a good backup boat paddle. Ive got an old 870 Supermag with the plastics. Awesome brushgun with the 3 1/2" 00 buck for deer and has been flawless on the bay and in the swamp. The cheap matte finish they put on the Express will turn your hand orange in a hour or less in salt spray but the paint fixes that, I spray the action out once every 2 or 3 years with carboncutter wether it needs it or not.

If you want low priced shotgun, a single shot 12 or 20 gauge break barrel can be had new for less than $150.

Well, at least you don't need a magazine plug for that one.

Or you could get a used (and sometimes new) Maverick 88 for the same price, which is far better than a single shot for water fowl.
