Benelli, the Italian firearm manufacturer known for their shotguns, has entered the bolt-action rifle market with the introduction of the Benelli Lupo. The Lupo is offered in three different popular rifle cartridges; the .30-06, .300 Win. Mag. and .270 Win.
The Benelli Lupo features a chassis-style construction built from an alloy lower receiver and is fitted with a synthetic stock and forend. The stock incorporates Benelli's patented Progressive Comfort recoil-reducing system and Combtech cheek pad.
The Lupo features a Crio-treated, free-floating barrel attached to a hardened steel barrel extension. The Benelli Lupo has the ability to adjust drop, cast and trigger reach with included shims. Shooters can achieve a customized fit out of the box without the need for expensive gunsmithing.
The Lupo's detachable box magazine features a double-stack configuration with a partial divider that loads like a single stack.
