I haven’t tried the CZ bag, but my favorite padded soft case to date is the Midway Pro Rifle Case. Very thick padding. Well made. Should fit your American.
I have one of those for my 10/22 and agree it is a good bag and a great value. I would prefer to get the CZ branded bag if it fits, but the Midway bag is my likely #2 choice.

Yes. I have it. It will fit my 457 Varmint with athlon 3-12 x 40 scope. It WILL NOT fit 457 Varmint MTR with Sightron 36x42 scope or my 10/22 with boyds Pro Varmint stock and 8-32 x 44 Mueller scope. My best guess is your American will fit..unless you have a monster piece of glass on it
Awesome! I have a Vortex Diamondback 6-24x50, so not a small scope. Would it be possible to get internal dimensions (length & height)? Thanks!

The best bag I've ever used
Thanks! That does look sweet, but more than I’m looking to spend. I only need it to go from my house to truck to range and back, so simple (and relatively cheap) is my goal.

IDK, if that's the only rifle you own, any your not running allot of scope, then it might be a good choice. The fit will be restrictive though and there will be limited room for accessories. Based on my experience, there is nothing good about trying to stuff a rifle into too small a case. There are ALLOT of other bags out there that would be more versatile/useful for similar money. FWIW, I'm also a huge fan of the MidwayUSA branded bags. They make them in all different sizes and styles. The HD Tactical is a favorite of mine in particular. It's really nice quality and very versatile, ) I own more expensive bags but these carry all my CZ/Bergara/Vudoo scoped rifles all the time. They carry anything from my American to a 16# Vudoo with a 17", 56mm scope and attached bipod if I need it. Then the mag pockets will hold 300+ rounds of ammo and the large side pocket, bipod, tools, extra mags, .... PS: I believe there are a couple fo good threads in this forum that have discussed bag recommendations.

Going to have to measure my new 1710/XLR tonight. That bag might be the ticket.
My club/range is literally a 10 minute drive. I don't want to have to use a big honkin' hardcase every trip.

Comes in 3 different lengths. I bought it for my 1710HB XLR and it carries everything !
If I ever hit the lottery I'm hiring a gun bearer !
It's heavy when loaded up !

I'm looking at Sightron 36 x 42 I believe or the 45 x 45. I'm not sure. Any opinions please ?
Glad to share, although my experience is limited; I only tried my first Sightrons in the last couple years.
First one I got was an SVIII (S8). It's a big ol' bugger: 40mm tube, 5-40x56. I got mine when they were introduced for about $1,899. Now, I think they go $2,899. Love the thing. Sharp image, all kinds of elevation available. It's what I will probably run atop that 1710 for steel matches when things warm up. Other than it being a fat and heavy sucker, nothin' about it I don't like. Sharp image, good light, tracks like a champ.
Second one I got was the SV 10-50x60. It's got the dual parallax adjustment on the left (regular, then fine). Whether it was was worth the additional grand that an SIII runs (around $1,300) is debatable, but I have to acknowledge it's a very sweet scope for my purposes. I use it for paper-target games out to 100. Very crisp look, very little light loss even at 50x.
I'm not a good enough shot to merit either scope ... but I do believe they're helping me get there. :giggle:

Ty !
The 10 x 50 x 60 is my 3rd choice
I still like the fixed power as I only shoot 50 and 100 yards.
