Here one article about Turkish Shotguns... Not the best one but , we are the ones who makes good ones and no need to hide... When Hyundai came to USA nobody said this is a good car possibly but super cheap. But today, in 10 years, they came to the point that nobody can say all Korean cars are bad. Maybe there are other Korean companies makes cars too but , only the ones improved like Hyundai was able to stay here in USA. We want to be Toyota first then we will make Lexus ... Our initial plan should be following the path of famous brands and add more services and values to it.. Hyundai came and said we give 10 years warranty to our cars. Nobody still on the market can say that. That's the goal . We have the price, quality, all we need is your support for something good. It will happen by the time. I am confident about that 100%. We are in this business for long time...
Thanks to everybody in this forum.

This article written in 2007 , and has missing information. We use now CNC machines, computerized chroming, heat treatment , 3d part scanners , crack scanners many quality control mechanisms applied . Many people doesn't know that US companies are buying %70 of shotguns from Turkey. I will prepare a list in one week for everybody to see what's really happening... Thanks

I am tracking anything about Linberta on internet.. We want to build this brand so we feel like informing people in every platform will be helpful. We want people to feel our products and service is better. I like my business and passionate about this. That is all...

Was doing a Google search and found this thread, so registered and now giving my 2 cents. *

I decided to take a chance and purchase the Linberta 01L semi auto in walnut for $450 at Buds with free shipping. *It arrived this past Wednesday at my FFL. *Upon arrival, I opened the box and was immediately hesitant. *The first thing that hit me was that the picture shows a gloss finish with a somewhat burl walnut wood. *I can understand that wood varies but I was disappointed to see that the finish was satin and the wood was plain walnut. *So, I felt from the get go that Buds had misrepresented this gun by putting the best picture up they could. *After a compete inspection, I decided to sign off and accept the firearm since there appeared to be no damage and I was not paying a restocking fee. Once I got in the car I realized I did not get that free useless belt they are offering, so that did not help my hesitation factor and there was no manual. *What type of company ships a firearm without any paperwork, wow. *Needless to say, the belt and the manual arrived the next day via UPS under separate cover.

Today I took the 01L to the skeet range. *After a day of trail skeet and wobble I estimated I put about 220 rounds through this shotgun. *It did cycle flawless and has minimum recoil on 7.5 & 8 2-3/4 shells. *I was pleased with the cycling performance but have one Major Complaint. *I hate the bolt release button. *My fingers are killing me since this thing requires so much pressure. *The other thing I hate is when bottom loading you have to press the bolt release button and press it again if the loading gate reaches locked position. *If I knew this would be such a chore I would not bought the gun and trust me I am fit and in my 40's. *It would have been nice to not require the use of the bolt release button for bottom shell loading. *A day of shooting should not result in sore fingers.

After taking the shot gun apart tonight I see no way to easily make the bolt release button require less pressure. *Also after about 220 rounds there is evident wear on the bottom of the bolt assembly where it locks.

Would I buy it again - no, unless I knew the bolt release button required less pressure and like iI said before I felt it wad misrepresented in the picture. *Additionally, when parts do wear out, well I guess we will see what happens at that time. *Will it last 5000 rounds - don't know. * I will say this, Buds certainly gave this firearm high marks, no wonder they are the only ones selling it here in the US. *I was hoping this turned out to be a great gun since I really had my eye on their pump tactical and semi tactical. *Oh well....*

Regards from NC

Dear Neonbee,
Thank you for sharing with us. Here some points i want to inform.
1. Wood , we use match woods, Turkish walnut, each gun is different , same thing in cars they use for one car ( i mean the ones who makes luxury) form the same tree too. We can't deliver same in the picture because we use real wood.
2. About the button i will share it with factory , normally they make it this way and by the time it gets to the point after shooting some rounds like thousand or two all guns gets a little more easy to use. Your gun is brand new so let me know after you shoot 1-2 thousand rounds please .
3. Bolt lock little wear is normal , that is the part under pressure also. It doesn't mean it is abnormal.
4.I will ask factory if it is safe to make it loadable without pressing the button...
5. The main thing is what you said " works flowless" . Yes our shotguns are one of the best in terms of cycling and this is the most important issue.
6. It will easily fire over 5000 rounds. This is very good heat treated shotgun. Similar shotgun or less is $799 from Turkey.
7. If you need anything please email me info@linberta.com . We reply emails 7 days.
This is the lowest priced shotgun and has free accessories , superior recoil pad (you forgot to mention it but we have a very special recoil pad ), with 5 choke tubes and cycling flowless and has a nice warranty.
Also there is an extra firin ping int he box free too.
Anyway thanks for choosing Linberta. That gun will serve long time as long as you clean and oil .
Best Regards,
Matt

Personally, I would rather not have an extra firing pin in the box and not be lured with a better than average warranty. A spare firing pin in the box tells me there is a problem with that part. I never bought a gun that comes with a spare firing pin, though I wish my Huglu had a half dozen of them. I have guns that are over 100 years old that are still on the same firing pin. A meaty warranty seems good, but I would rather never have to use the warranty.

As to the wood, that's pretty common. What you see in advertisements is never what you get. Wood comes in all grades and prices. Some of the best wood in the world comes from Turkey. Some shotgun blanks costs as much or more than a dozen whole Linbertas. I would assume that most of the better wood is reserved for SXS and O/U guns made in Turkey, as it is elsewhere. Autos and pumps in this price range are utility guns with utility wood.

If one were to buy a Linberta and it needs a repair, where do you send it? Is there a service center in the USA? What's the turn around time? What parts are available?
