Been going back and fourth between them, ZFI, and CAA on which one I want to try.
I believe these are part of the pistol brace ban, so do your research before you purchase one.

That's an SBR, pay 200 and pass go

Also all of them are very gimmicky and don't work flawlessly. A dedicated large format pistol is better and more economical. Mp5, scorpion. Stribog, ep9 etc

That was my concern.
I couldn't see how you'd just snap in a pistol and have an accurate rifle - especially cold bore.

To be clear, these aren't "rifles" . You need a 16" barrel and OAL of 26" minimum to be a rifle.
Agree with others, look for a standard PDW. I tried one of the micro roni conversions, just did not like. Felt goofy, and I lost use of a pistol.

What is the intended use case?

The way I see it you have two options to get something worth having :

Wait and see what happens with the pistol brace shenanigans, and pick up a something like a CMMG dissent/banshee, MP5 clone, Scorpion, etc with a brace (or go the SBR route)
Or, buy a bullpup (Tavor, Aug, MDR, Hellion, etc.)

All those pistol chassis things are a gimmick. I have friends with them - they don't really "add" much other than complication. If I need something shorter than a "rifle" I just grab my Aug.

Recover Tactical cracks me up. The first product I see from them was their 1911 overlay/grip thing that made an already large and heavy pistol even larger and heavier. I remember thinking "Who buys this garbage?"

Did you look at their FAQ?
Looks like the questions were answered by a sarcastic teenager. All expect anything related to legality.......all those say "ask a lawyer, not us" LOL

But to answer your question - I am trying to solve a problem - where I'd like to have long guns (for accuracy).....without leaving long guns hidden/laying around......the barn, machine shop, in trucks, tractors......while still having a pistol on my hip.

My thought was I could stick my edc into a chassis and have a more accurate pew-pew.

Starting to sound like that won't work.

honestly I'd just keep a short, handy rifle around like a Ruger American Predator, or SBR a Stribog or Scorpion or something.
Yeah the pistol chassis won't work. I just keep an mp5 on every room and every corner :)
