The Benelli Lupo, introduced last year, has become one of the most popular and most recognized bolt-action centerfire rifles on the market. The rifle is now offered in three additional calibers, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win. and .243 Win., joining the three original calibers of .30-06 Springfield, .300 Win. Mag. and .270 Win.

Renowned for making high-quality shotguns, Benelli brings expertise and Italian craftsmanship to create the highly-accurate centerfire Lupo rifle with precise sub-MOA accuracy, superb ergonomics, patented adjustability and unprecedented recoil reduction.

The added Lupo rifles from Benelli are built with the same innovative features as the originals. It all starts with seven exclusive Benelli patents for a gun that provides a truly customized fit for top performance handling. The rifle features a chassis-style construction, built from an alloy lower receiver, and fitted with a synthetic stock and forend. The stock incorporates Benelli’s patented Progressive Comfort recoil-reducing system and Combtech cheek pad for comfortable shooting.

The Benelli Lupo achieves repeatable, consistent, sub-MOA accuracy thanks to a precision CRIO-treated and free-floating barrel, which is securely bedded (steel-to-steel) into the alloy chassis receiver. This accuracy is unleashed with a crisp, adjustable trigger.


An innovative barrel attachment system creates an unaltered chamber and perfect alignment on every gun. The rifle was subjected to rigorous military quality and safety testing while precision accuracy was assured by testing across a wide spectrum of ammunition.


In addition to great accuracy, the Benelli Lupo’s design features modular adjustability to provide the perfect fit between shooter and rifle. The chassis-style configuration of a separate stock, receiver and forend allow the shooter to customize the Lupo to one of 12 drop-and-cast positions with the included shims and can be expanded to 36 postions by utilizing optional combs. Further fit adjustments can be made with included LOP spacers. Finger reach to the trigger is also adjustable with included spacers that can be placed between the receiver and the stock. Additional fit choices include two raised cheek pad styles and one optional length butt pad.

The Benelli Lupo tames recoil with a patented built-in Progressive Comfort system and a Combtech cheek pad. The double-stack box magazine is incredibly easy to load in or out of the gun. A two-position, tang-mounted safety offers ambidextrous manipulation. Airtouch Grip surfaces provide a safe and firm hold on the rifle. A threaded muzzle (5/8 x 24 thread) gives the option of adding a muzzle brake or suppressor. The short bolt throw quietly chambers and ejects rounds for quick and smooth follow-up shots.

Benelli continues its rich tradition of blending form, function and industry-leading innovation to provide shooters with high-quality firearms that shoot as well as they look. The Benelli Lupo combines precise accuracy, adjustability, superior ergonomics and recoil reduction to make users better shooters and successful hunters.
