Default Buffer tube replacement in Los Angeles?

Anyone have any recommendations for getting a buffer tube replaced in the Los Angeles area?

Already have the new buffer tube just need to swap out the old one real quick.

Called a few places and got quoted $60-$80 and was told I'd be in n out in less than 20, have a feeling thats on the high side given I could buy everything needed and do it myself at the price.

Please advise!

Are we talking about some sort of unique buffer tube setup or a plain jane AR?

Do it yourself, it truly is a no brainer and you've already spent 5 minutes of the 20 typing and reading the replies. You tube is ripe with how-to's.

Do you have a vise? Mag block? Castle nut wrench?

I can do it for less than you can buy the tools.

I’m a little confused. Why can’t you buy an AR wrench and do it yourself?
