Looking to purchase a new whitetail deer rifle, have it narrowed down to either the Lupo or S20 rifles.
I'm just not sure of which way to go, price point is close, weight is almost even, is one better than the other?
Any one with some info on these rifles and the pros and cons will help in my choice.
Thanks

Sako has been around longer so probably the safer bet.

I would like to try a Lupo though. I abuse the hell out of Benelli shotguns and they just work. My has been used as a wading stick accidentally, went swimming a few times in saltwater, and threw it in the pond once when my friend fumbled the catch.

I feel like Benelli should stay with what they are good at, making super reliable shotguns.
The Lupo just looks a bit strange while the Sako looks better and has a plethora of accessories available right away.
