The new Ruger Guide Gun

Did a search and I couldn't find a thread on this already. I know there is a discussion of the new finish version of the Gunsite, but I think this is a completely different rifle.

Ruger has released a compact bolt gun similar to the Gunsite that is chambered in heavier calibers for guide gun service. Has a muzzle brake, adjustable buttpad, etc.

It's a cool-looking gun, but how fast could you cycle a bolt in the intense, close-quarters circumstances a guide gun would be used in? Haven't all guide guns been lever-action previously? Maybe not, I'm pretty ignorant about rifles.

Here's the gun:
Beretta PX4 .40 S&W | Beretta 92FS 9x19 Para | Rock Island Armory GI 1911 .45 ACP | Sig Sauer P6 9x19 Para | Colt Python 4" .357 Magnum | Colt 1968 Det. Spec. .38 Spc. | Ruger LCP .380 ACP | Daniel Defense M4V1 5.56x45 | Alpine M1 Carbine .30 | Steyr M1895 8x56 | Ruger 10/22 .22LR |1943 Izhevsk Mosin-Nagant M91/30 7.62x54R | Remington 870 12GA
