At First Glance: Benelli Lupo Rifle

At First Glance: Benelli Lupo Rifle

Well-known worldwide for its extensive line of top-quality shotguns, Benelli has jumped into the bolt-action rifle game. At SHOT Show in January, Benelli introduced the Lupo, packed with many innovative features including seven exclusive Benelli patents.

“Lupo” is the Italian word for wolf, and Benelli has high hopes that the new bolt-action rifle will dominate big-game hunting the way its Super Black Eagle has cornered the market on duck and goose blinds throughout the United States. Promising sub-MOA accuracy, the Lupo wears a black synthetic stock, and the precision, free-floated barrel is matte blued.

Lupo’s design features modular adjustability touted to provide the perfect fit between shooter and rifle. The chassis-style configuration of a separate stock, receiver and forend allows the shooter to customize the Lupo to one of 12 drop and cast positions with the included shims. The new bolt-action also features a patented, built-in Progressive Comfort system and a Combtech cheek pad for comfort, and utilizes a flush-fitting double-stack box magazine for easy loading and unloading.

Benelli’s new Lupo is currently available in three popular big-game chamberings—.270 Win. and .30-06 with 22-inch barrels, and a .300 Win. Mag. with 24-inch barrel.
