I have owned a ZP 49E, ejector side lock since my 18th birthday (I am now 52).
It sees frequent shooting and, despite owning a Beretta ultralight and a Beretta sporting clays gun (which I also enjoy), it is my favourite field carry / bunny gun.
I have also owned a CZ BRNO combination gun in 7x57R x12 gua.
Neither has given me any trouble. In fact, Czech imports have been common in Australia since the 60's and I have never known anyone have a problem with a czech firearm.
I very much enjoy the side by side side lock. It is well made and has a fantastic balance.
My only criticism is that the choking while indicated as full modified is tighter than on an american gun.
Hope this helps.
