I don't see it that way... if you select the parts you really want then let the factory put together the upper then test fire, well you're still in charge of your custom build and it's your build, not something off the rack.
You could even then add an assembled lower with exactly the parts you want, like a BCM for example and still have YOUR build. Most of us do put together the lower but in the end the true build is done in your brain not necessarily on your workbench. Make the right decisions, buy quality and you can claim a lot more than a piece of the build.
I did a build your own upper by choosing the components I wanted then let Daniel Defense put it together. Then added it to my own custom lower. It is MY design, my build. So do your best then name it and claim it!
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
