Benelli Introduces Its First Bolt-Action Rifle, the Lupo
Ask any hunter or shooter what they associate with Benelli, and the answer is going to be “shotguns.” From the M2 pump to the Vinci and Super Vinci semi-autos to the 828i over-and-under and the legendary Super Black Eagle line of waterfowl guns, the Italian company has a history of producing scatterguns that are popular in the field as well as in competition and law enforcement.
For 2020, Benelli is working on changing that perception by rolling out the first bolt-action rifle in the company’s history: the Lupo. “Lupo” is Italian for “wolf,” and Benelli is marketing this gun as “an apex predator.” At the SHOW Show introduction to the industry, a company representative described the gun as “built to dominate the land the way the Super Black Eagle III dominates the skies,” and from the features the company has built into this gun, they’re not messing around.
