If I were to bring all the upper and bcg parts in and only purchase the lower (trigger, stock...) from Riflegear, how much would they charge for the assembly? By the hour?

I'm not sure how much they charge, but it isn't that hard to do it yourself.

There's even an assembly guide, http://www.calguns.net/OLL/assembly.html

It depends on what exactly, you're having us assemble. Normally we charge $25 to assemble a lower receiver and between $30-50 to assemble an upper. But like I said, it all depends.

I don't get the point of doing it yourself. Is it fun like model building? Or are there so many variations there is no way a store can carry them all?

to some people it is fun to assemble stuff. To others, they feel it isn't worth paying someone $25 to assemble a lower when they can do it themselves in 10-15 minutes.

And yes, there are so many ways an AR-pattern firearm can be assembled, that no shop could carry them all. So, many shops carry the common versions and sell lower receivers for those that want to build their own, such as, can't afford to buy the entire gun at once, or want a personalized configuration that nobody offers.

Thanks. I'm probably going to order the parts (upper, bcg, charger) from an online vendor and buy the lower, including the trigger and stock, from riflegear and ask them to put them all together for me.

Yes, I'm a noob. :(

Thats probably your best decision if you want to know what someone charges for a service.

Contact them directly:sleeping:

I just assembled my own tonight. First time ever. It definitely wasn't 15 mins. I was mad slow and goofed here and there (easily fixed of course). Next time should be a lot faster of course. It was actually super easy. I was very surprised!!

I bought a riflegear upper assembly because they include a lifetime cleaning service.

Oh nevermind, that's the lifetime warranty.
