The first Benelli bolt action:
the Lupo

“It has hunting in its DNA! Ours is an attentive eye, which looks at the world around us, perceives its stimuli and makes them its own, transforming them into innovations. Thus was born the Lupo, a bolt action with unique features that embodies the characteristics of the wolf, the predator par excellence, and opens up a new frontier.

“It has hunting in its DNA! Ours is an attentive eye, which looks at the world around us, perceives its stimuli and makes them its own, transforming them into innovations. Thus was born the Lupo, a bolt action with unique features that embodies the characteristics of the wolf, the predator par excellence, and opens up a new frontier.

Starting 2021 with the launch of the first bolt action in its history, the Lupo, which takes inspiration from the predator par excellence, is precisely in the Benelli style, which again this year has decided to amaze those who believe in this great reality that has made innovation and quality are its winning weapons.

This first bolt action is not a simple rifle, but a real certainty. As soon as you grab it, you are guaranteed to have something uncommon in your hands, a reality that encompasses in its total length (1,082 mm with 560 mm long barrel; 1,133 mm with 610 mm long barrel) a set of aesthetics, technology and ergonomics highest levels.

Without too many words: the Urbino-based company has created an exceptional rifle, which is shaped on the needs of the hunter, focusing on sub-M.O.A precision. (valid in all weather conditions), thanks also to the use of exclusive technologies and in part patented by Benelli itself.

Simply, in a single weapon, everything that a bolt action like the Wolf must represent has been carefully enclosed. The first peculiarity is the integrated precision system: specifically, the structure of the Lupo is the aluminum chassis, which guarantees absolute rigidity of the whole weapon, determining its excellent accuracy.

The rigid shutter box where, the perfect mechanical combination of the thermally treated rigid steel shutter box and the fluted shutter with BE.S.T.treatment, ensure maximum precision and a fluid and rapid cocking cycle.

The Crio floating barrel with BE.S.T. coating, whose treatment enhances the accuracy of the shot.

Using the cryogenic technology Crio System, the vibration and expansion of the barrel occurs homogeneously at the moment of the shot, enhancing its ballistic performance.

Instead, with the treatment BES.T. (Benelli Surface Treatment), the company has decided to focus on a ‘particular’ process to which the Lupo’s bolt, bolt lever, barrel, action, thread cover and bolt locking lever are subject.

This technology guarantees excellent resistance to corrosion and wear, repairing the weapon from external agents. A green project, totally ecological, which does not produce harmful emissions for the environment.

To complete this integrated precision system, the Progressive Comfort of the stock, a real recoil reduction system, offers maximum stability and speed in further target acquisition.

Another fundamental element is modularity: in fact, Benelli has also taken into account the ergonomic and modular design, creating a shotgun that adapts well and is modeled to the hunter’s build.

With its 6 L.O.P. and the availability of two different pads, this weapon allows you to change the distance between the pad and the trigger in 6 different configurations (from a minimum of 350 mm to a maximum of 385 mm), mixing everything in a very simple and soft way .

Without ever losing sight of comfort, Benelli has seen fit to equip the Lupo with the interchangeable Combtech nose piece, thus attenuating the impact and absorbing the vibrations on the hunter’s face. 3 interchangeable nose pads (1 mounted + 2 optional) make the Lupo extremely customizable.

To increase the possibility of customizing the Benelli bolt action, there is also the Perfect Fitting designed to allow an ideal positioning for those who hold the rifle (it offers 36 positions available, combining the 4 folding plates with the 3 deviation positions of each – neutral, right, left- and to the 3 hake), especially during hunting sessions; in addition to the possibility of adjusting the distance from the trigger thanks to the thickness of 1 mm.

To these merits we must also add that the Lupo, compared to other rifles, has a safety activation system that is much easier to insert, more usable and with less resistance for those who use it, even in maximum safety. This feature leads to greater simplicity in deactivation, helping the hunter to remain perfectly in aim and consequently affecting the accuracy of the shot, just like the wolf, which never loses sight of its prey during its hunt.

With this bolt action rifle, Benelli has achieved the goal it had set itself: to create not a simple weapon, but a concentrate of design, technology, ergonomics and, what matters most to a hunter, precision.
