Any Sharps or Spencer carbine shooters here?

Recently, I've taken more of a liking to the lesser-seen arms of the Civil War. Something besides the 1853 Enfield and 1861 Springfield rifle muskets and Colt/Remington revolvers. Are there any owners/shooters of the 1859 Sharps or 1860 Spencer carbines here on the forum?

I own a replica (Uberti) 1875 Sharps Carbine chambered for .45-120. It has acquired some minor rust stains on the case hardened finish on the receiver that I am trying to remove in order to sell this rare piece. I also owned an 1858 Sharps in .54 cal, but sold it years ago. I, too, admire the design of the Civil War Sharps and Spencer rifles.
