Best reason I can think of to take it out, is to keep it from falling out while you are struggling with getting the buffer into the hole. It was quite a battle to get the ones I have in. The pins holding the trigger group will likely slip out as you turn the rifle, and then the trigger group hits the floor. I addition, this is a good time to clean the inside of the receiver and wipe everything down. The hardest part about the whole process is taking the action out of the stock. Once you have done that, the trigger group is easy. Just make sure to put it on safe so you don't hit the trigger by mistake and launch parts across the room.
