I am looking into purchasing a Semi Auto Shotgun. I know one gets what they pay for but I found this particular Shotgun, The Linberta at Buds Gun Shop online.
It seems like a decent Semi for the money and it has received many good user reviews but I was wondering if any Defense Carry Members have ever heard of this Brand, own this or used this Linberta?
You can see a video that was made at Buds Gun Shop concerning the Linberta but for some reason I was unable to transfer video onto this Thread.
Thanks for any input and I really appreciate your help...

I have found over the years that every time I tried to buy a non name brand bargain I ended up getting burned. Usually I ended up paying more in the long run. I suggest you buy once from a quality manufacturer friend.

Buds sent me an email about this brand a few months ago. I have been thinking about a semi-auto to keep my Mossberg 500 company, so I Googled Limberta and found that it is a Turkish brand. There were enough negatives in various forums about the quality of the gun and customer service to make me steer clear. I've decided that when I am ready, I will get a Mossberg 930
I purchased the Linberta Semi Auto shotgun about a month ago and so far am very happy with it. I was going to buy an Akdal MKA1919, but I decided on this gun after talking to other MKA1919 owners who reported having feeding issues with light loads. This gun has all the features I was looking for but couldnt find in a lot of other brands that were significantly more expensive. I have about 300 rounds through it so far, mostly target clay shells. It has consistently fed and cycled everything I have put through it without a single hiccup. The fit and finish is very nice. It has a nice sticky, grippy pistol grip that fits my hand perfectly. The safety switch placement is in a comfortable and intuitive location. It has a 14 inch LOP.
The first thing I did was to install a Choate magazine extension to increase the capacity to 9 shots, and then I added a brighter front sight fiber optic filament from a Wal-Mart kit I purchased for my Mossberg 500. The gun came with butstock shims so I can align the stock to provide a the proper line of sight for my eye on the sights. The ghost ring rear sight is fully adjustable. It also has a feature that allows me to suspend the magazine feed so I can load shells through the ejection port, which is pretty cool if I decide I need a slug or buck shot after loading up the mag with bird shot. Overall, It's light, well balanced, and has a nice soft recoil pad. Also, it has much less recoil than my beloved Mossy, which will leave my shoulder black and blue after a several rounds of magnum buck or slugs. It comes with a breacher choke, which looks pretty cool, but I have also experimented with some other extension chokes that offer some muzzle breaking effect along with tighter patterning. It uses Benelli chokes.
Overall, I think it's a great gun and am enjoying the heck out of it. It has many more features than other guns that are more than twice the price. My FFL also commented on how nice the fit and finish is on the product. Buds offeres a lifetime warranty for twenty bucks, which I opted to purchase. So far, I'm very pleased with the gun and have nothing negative to report on it.
Some of their stuff looks like Weatherby's tactical offerings. I'd take a look at them.

I got a Mossy 930 hd added an extention 7+1 runs great
I hope you're still enjoying yours as much as you were when you wrote this. I've had mine since the second-gen models arrived at Bud's and I'm pretty high on it, too. Really can't find anything to complain about it, and everyone I let shoot it loves it, too. I would just really like to add the extension to make it that much better. I'm actually thinking about having an adapter machined so that I can change the stock out for an ATI collapsible model I've got that's for a Mossy. I've got it on a 590A1 right now, but I so like the Linberta that I'm thinking of doing a swap. Would make it a little more comfortable for me and a lot more comfortable for my wife (I originally bought the gun for her). Pretty sure it can be done if I can find somebody to do it.

Im with bopeep, looking for a mag extension..tried the one for the 870 but it wont fit without a hacksaw, tried one for the escort, threads were different. I am too scared to take a hacksaw to my gun based on a you tube vid and too cheap to take it to a gunsmith...the seems to be many manufacturers of the same or similar gun there has got to be a mag extension out there for it.
a 400 gun is a 400 gun, and old thread is sometimes new again. Im sure there are more than 3 people with the 400 buds semi auto special here on the forum.
..all in all nice gun cycles well as long as you keep the action lubed and the vent holes clean, pretty much shoots anything you put in it slugs shot big and little probably have 1000 rounds though mine but my shoulder says 12000. I was at the range one day and my shooting buddy was showing me how he put 5 45's in the target then I shot 5 and cut my target in half, he bought a shotgun the next day hehe

Have you seen the youtube vid where the guy uses a pipe cutter instead of a hacksaw? Seems like a much safer way to make sure you get a square cut. Video makes it clear that cutting off the end of the existing tube is a must. There's a lip on the end that keep the follower/spring from going past it, meaning that any extension would not be accessible. Plus, of course, the existing threads are too long. I think I'm game. I'm ordering a Nordic for the 870 plus a clamp, which just seems like a good idea. You can actually go with a +3 if you want. Would extend to somewhere around the middle of the muzzle brake. I think I'll stick with a +2 though. Cost is considerably more than a Choate, but I plan to keep this gun for as long as it lasts (that's how much I like it), so hopefully I'll be glad I spent the extra. I noticed ATI also makes some, and I have generally liked their products in the past, but their tube extenders are fluted, which looks odd for some reason, plus their clamps are plastic as opposed to the steel ones from Nordic.
ya I saw that one, dont know about cutting on the tube, once its cut its cut and it doesnt seem like limberta parts are readily available. But yea your are right, some part of the end will need to be cut off either way. The The 870 tube fits but doesnt screw down far enough leaving a gap You either fill the gap or cut off the mag tube. The 870 tube is +2 and the escort tube is +3 and fits flush with the end of the barrel
I also saw another one where the guy uses a reg 870 tube and cut the end cap of the limberta and used the remainder to fill the gap. I am thinking of just supergluing a few washers to the end of the 870 extension to fill the gap
still work in progress
