Lefty Galco Shoulder Rig Question

I'm looking into getting a shoulder rig for my Springfield Mil-Spec 5" 1911. I already have a great IWB holster for it, but sometimes it's just so uncomfortable (mainly behind the wheel). I'm mostly looking into the Galco Jackass for the diagonal draw. However, being a lefty has it's drawbacks. My question(s):

On the Galco site, it says I must order the components separately to "build" a lefty rig. I'm wondering if I do this, does Galco assemble the rig? Or do I receive the components separately and build it myself? If so, what sort of work goes into assembling the setup? Also, I know that Galco claims their shoulder rigs are designed for "hammer down" carry, but does anyone have experience with carrying Condition One with the Jackass rig? Thanks in advance.

I have a Galco for my P220. The magazine holders are either L or R handed, depending on which loop you use to attach it. My holster itself is for hammer down as it should be for a DA/SA pistol.
