Going rate for AR15 Assembly

Like in most cases regarding guns, this is my first source of info cause you guys know your shit and you'll save me at least three or so phone calls.

What's a fair rate to be charged for a complete AR15 assembly? No fancy parts involved; nothing extraneous.

I've been quoted $150 as the benchmark. Is this about right?

Are you asking how much It costs for someone to assemble it?

You should try to assemble it yourself. It's a lot of fun and pretty easy.

Find someone that you can pay in ammo

The more Magpul parts you use the cheaper the labor should be.....

Putting the lower together is very easy and straightforward, no special tools needed. You should do that and buy a complete upper if you want although they aren't difficult to put together either.

Yup.

Theres too many little hands running around and I'd seriously rather not have to buy the tools, etc.

Yea. That's exactly what I plan on doing. No special tools? Hmmm...

There is a ton of YouTube videos showing you how to put the lower together. Thatís how I learned. Like others said, itís pretty easy plus you learn how everything works.
