The Golden Bullseye Award goes to the Benelli Lupo.

Last April 23rd, the American magazine Rifleman - House Organ of the National Rifle Association (NRA) - gave the bolt action Benelli the Golden Bullseye Award for the rifle of the year 2021.

This important recognition goes to products that stand out for their excellence, quality and innovation.

George Thompson, Director of Product Management for Benelli USA said: "When we set out to launch Benelli's first bolt action rifle, we knew it had to be special and it had to outperform the expectations of hunters and shooters. Winning Rifle of the Year is a testament to our commitment to producing high-quality firearms driven by innovation and high performance. We are honored to receive this prestigious award."

This is the 19th year that NRA Publications has recognized outstanding products with Golden Bullseye Awards.

A recognition of the Lupo's outstanding technical and ergonomic performance, given after months of careful testing and evaluation by a committee, made up of veteran NRA Publications editors, graphic designers and staff.
