In a year already marked by one premium brand being acquired by another, now Benelli USA has announced it has added the French gun manufacturer Chapuis to its portfolio of brands offered in the United States. Chapuis, a longtime producer of premium upland shotguns and big-game rifles, will join Benelli, Franchi, Stoeger and Uberti USA as brands under the Benelli USA umbrella.
