I was tempted to be a wag and suggest that you buy the CZ "American" and pretend it's American made.
In all seriousness, though, the American, while a nice rifle, has no iron sights. When I was in the market for a quality .22 bolt rifle I also wanted iron sights so I am with you on that.
If I were buying an American made .22 bolt rifle I'd take a hard look at the 77/22. The rotary magazine makes the stock a little wide right at the "balance point" but, hey, my CZ has a magazine sticking out of it there so nothing is perfect.
A friend of mine has a 77/22 with a Volquartsen threaded barrel. It's a pretty nice setup with nice lines.
