Welcome from South Florida and the Reenactors forum, I can't comment on the Sharps, I've never looked at one closely or used one. I do have 2 Armi Sport products though. A P53 Enfield and a M61 Springfield. I have no complaints on their function, they've both served me well. I did do some extra work on them to fix some of their small details which aren't quite right but are purely cosmetic. I've had no problems with them mechanically.
