It depends what you're measuring by "performs great." If you mean "has the same range and accuracy as an AEG, except 1/10th the fire rate", then yea, a TM VSR or a CA M24 or something like that.
If you mean "has better range and accuracy than an AEG", you'll have to spend upward of $1,000 on aftermarket parts.
Just to echo what theguy said. Most people who have excellently performing bolt action rifles (that is, ones that actually have an advantage over AEGs) spend a lot of time and money getting them to that point.
