Being that this was the first bolt-action rifle mass produced, the Dreyse needle gun was designed in 1824 and finalized in 1836 using paper cartridges loaded via butt stock making it the first breech loaded gun.Unlike most other bolt-action rifles, the Dreyse needle gun had a bolt sticking diagonally upward.

Yeah! I was going to suggest this, but I did a quick search as saw that it was already suggested. So I'll just add on what I was going to say. The Dreyse Needle Gun is the world's first bolt-action rifle. It was called the needle gun because of its needle-like firing pin.
Here's a few more images:
