Purchased this wonderful rifle a couple months back and I think it may be the sweetest shooting 300 mag I have ever owned. 3/4 inch groups with the recoil of a 270 . Benelli got everything about this gun right . Recoil pad that actually reduces recoil . Ergonomics is exceptional. Threaded for brake or suppressor. 4+1. Nice flush box mag. 60 degree bolt throw. Comes with picatinny rail for excellent mounting stability.
The reason I am selling it is on the cover of the Sports Afield May /June issue which I had not noticed until a week or so ago.
Same gun but with walnut AA stock. I am smitten and impulsive and now I bought one. Please buy my my Lupo for $1099 shipped anywhere in lower 48.
Best deal you are ever gonna find on a really great gun for Elk or Africa.

How many rounds through it? What is the barrel length? What is the barrel twist? What is the rifle weight?

What are your thoughts on the trigger on this rifle? Both pull weight and the location? I always thought it was a unique design but have never got to hold one.

Nice crisp trigger. I am up at my cabin in central Montana and don’t have that gun with me but I will get back to you in a few days when my setter is done with his bird hunting.

I do have the walnut LUPO. This is the reason why my first LUPO is for sale.

Ok i am back home now and have the gun in hand. The ergonomics of the trigger I find excellent and very natural . Looks different but feels great. Pull weight is approximately 3.5 with no creep and very crisp . Don’t have a measuring device but you can adjust pull weight
I think Benelli made a very nice rifle using a lot of knowledge from their shotgun side.
Also I am going to post another pic of my new gun with the walnut since the last one was so blurry

And I will add a picture of both so to enable you to compare.
My first thoughts are they both shoot 3/4 inch groups with Barnes ttsx 180 grain loads.
My second thought is the walnut stock will not be subjected to Montana hunting . The walnut is for a hunt where the wood is safe. Guess I am going for some Texas stand hunting!

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve

Hi Theleatherman, I attach two price lists, one in English, one in Italian, because several words of the language used by the agent are very difficult to understand. If you get in touch with Laszlo Keresztes (owner/manager) tell him that you got the name from Paolo Sinha, italian hunter.
Suerte!
