Fine. Gun Digest magazine lists the 8 best manual bolt action rifles of all
time, take your pick:

Top 8 Bolt-Action Rifles

The AR-15 is not a manual bolt action rifle, neither is the AK-47.

And there is only one reason for that, most people are not insane and so
they know that if the human race is not to go extinct there must be limits
placed on the Second Amendment; reasonable people can disagree on exactly
where to draw the line, but once you get to Nerve Gas, Anthrax Bombs, and
Thermonuclear Warheads you're clearly in the land of the looney.
