New for 2023: Benelli Lupo KAOS Rifle

Although our goal typically is to keep chaos out of our lives, Benelli has impelled us to open our doors to a new kind of KAOS.

Typically we try to keep chaos out of our daily lives …  but we are now being impelled to do the opposite with the introduction of the Benelli Lupo KAOS, the first high-performance bolt-action rifle from Benelli to offer a one-of-one finish treatment across the barreled action and stock.

The Lupo KAOS is a limited-edition rifle chambered for the popular 6.5 Creedmoor, and is intended to disrupt the notions of what a production firearm should be. Each Lupo KAOS rifle presents its own, one-of-a-kind styling thanks to a carefully selected base coat/overcoat combination that is artfully hand-distressed at the factory to give it a unique appearance. The barreled action is treated to a Cerakote finish that adds two or more complimenting colors selected from a carefully chosen 15-color earth-tone palette. The result is a premium rifle that stands out as much for its uncommon appearance as its unmatched reliability and accuracy in the field.

Based on the standard Lupo—Benelli's first chassis-style bolt-action rifle—the Lupo KAOS comes with a 3-shot sub-MOA designed to deliver one of the most comfortable, ergonomic stock systems ever developed. Key features include:

  • Free-floating Crio-treated 24-inch barrel with a 5/8x24 threaded muzzle
  • Adjustable 2.2- to 4.4-lb. trigger
  • Sculpted bolt with three locking lugs and a 60-degree bolt throw to accommodate low-mounted optics
  • Detachable box magazine
  • Combtech cheek pad to mitigate felt facial recoil
  • Progressive Comfort integrated recoil management
  • Trigger reach spacers for a custom fit
  • Integrated swivel mounts
  • Two-piece Picatinny rail system for optic mounting

Although the finish variations found on the Lupo KAOS are unlimited, the number of guns available for purchase is not.

Want to be part of the KAOS? Benelli has designed two consumer activation contests:

Consumer Photo Contest. From June 15 through July 31, Benellis is inviting consumers to go into a Benelli Dealer location, check out the new LUPO KAOS, and post a photo of them to social media with the hashtags #BenelliKAOS or #LupoKAOS. On August 1, Benelli will draw one winner to receive a trip to Outdoor Solutions long-range shooting school in Utah.

KAOS Purchasers Contest. Purchasing customers can register their new LUPO KAOS on and check if it is one of 10 “chosen guns” made with a color-matching Steiner Predator 8 rifle scope valued at $2,000. One of those 10 lucky buyers will also be selected to attend an Outdoor Solutions long-range school in 2024.
