Does century assemble the SARs from a parts kit or do they get them in assembled and switch out needed parts. I'm pleased with my 2 SARs.Looks
like the price is.

They switch out the needed parts. With even worse ones I might add.

Yes. We're in real trouble when an eastern European manufacturer makes better parts than US manufacturers make. I got some of the take-off trigger parts from Century for about $.50 each. They're good parts: well hardened, smooth, etc. I wish I could use them in my AKs instead of the US junk.

I havent had any problems with the Century parts in any of my SARs. Admittedly, two of them havent fired very many rounds, but the other has put quite a few downrange, slow fire and rapid fire, and bump fire just for giggles. And still no problems. None of them have any trigger slap, either. Maybe I just lucked out several times.
But yeah, if I were going to do anything to them, I would replace the Century internals with something better, mostly just because of Century's reputation.
the trigger parts on my laminated sar-1 were horrible. it had the absolute worst trigger pull of any rifle i've fired. it was way loooooong, gritty, and had a "catch" about halfway through. i sent the rifle to bill springfield for a trigger job, and now it is sweet. bill did a great job. i had to check and see if the same stuff was in there. it's now short and crisp like it should be, and the "catch" is gone.
