Great news for fans of Benelli shotguns, the company has just launched its first bolt-action rifle – the LUPO – which is now available in Australia.
The LUPO has 3-shot sub-MOA accuracy (guaranteed), advanced ergonomics and a whole range of innovative features including 7 exclusive Benelli patents. The chassis-style hunting rifle has also been carefully engineered to allow you to customise and adjust the fit and shooting comfort straight out of the box.
The word LUPO is Italian for wolf, and the rifle certainly shares some characteristics with its namesake.
The LUPO features Benelli’s patented BE.S.T corrosion resistant finish, which provides a sleek, high-quality look backed by Benelli’s 25-year corrosion warranty.
The LUPO is one of the most customisable rifles on the market, which is great for people like me with short arms!
Benelli have made it super easy to adjust the length of the pull, drop, cast, trigger weight and much more straight out of the box without the need to take it to a gunsmith. The included shims allow the stock to be set to 36 different positions – it’s the Kama Sutra of hunting rifles! Optional fit choices include two raised cheek pad styles and one optional length butt pad.
Like the wolf, the LUPO is a fierce hunting machine built for accuracy. The Lupo 24 inch barrel system features a precision Crio-treated, free-floating barrel that is attached to a hardened steel barrel extension bedded to a steel block in the alloy receiver. This provides precision sub-MOA accuracy on every shot. It also features recoil reduction.
The Benelli LUPO bolt-action hunting rifle is priced from $2599 AUD and is available in the following calibers:
