How much force does it take to pull the thing back? I've seen several videos and it looks really easy.

It depends on the gun. If you have a mosin nagant like mine with the "sticky bolt" issue then its will be VERY VERY hard to pull back but a mauser or sprinfield 1903 are very easy but the lee enfield is the best in my opinion :D

If you can turn a knob of a door, you can work the bolt of a rifle.

Most bolt actions cock on opening. This means that bring the bolt upwards after firing cocks the striker. This requires a little effort. After that, pulling back the bolt is nothing. Closing requires just a teeny weeny bit of extra force. Various designs, like the Lee Enfield, cock on closing. No effort to pull up and it's easier to cock the bolt by closing.

A five year old couldn't cycle my M48A but I believe a 12 year old could. I'll have to borrow some kids to find out. :lol:

As said previously it changes up depending on what rifle you're operating and the condition of said rifle. The owner/operator's upkeep habits also play a part in how smooth the rifle's action is/can be.

Pretty much the same for mine. Its easy to get the bolt open, but to chamber another round, or eject the spent brass, you gotta move the bolt fast.
