Bridge Gun Company and Bridge Gun Works were trade names owned by Shapleigh Hardware Co of St Louis. The guns were made in Belgium by H. Pieper and Anciens Etablissment Pieper and in the US by Crescent, Stevens, and Harrington & Richardson. There's a good chance that a single shot would be a Stevens Model 94.

The 12 Gauge Single Shot Shotgun Model 336882 from the Volunteer Arms Company was probably manufactured by the Belknap Hardware and Manufacturing Company that operated in Louisville, Kentucky. Iver Johnson Company and H & R, are two other gun manufacturers that made this type of shotgun.
Is it a .410 bore shotgun or a 12 gauge? No matter. A Bridge Co. single barrel or double barrel (side to side) shotgun manufactured in 1930 is, in all likelihood, a Crescent City Arms shotgun. This company made many thousands of inexpensive shotguns under dozens of names. Collector value minimum. Practical value depends on the condition of the gun.
