Used alto flute--Artley vs. Armstrong?

I hope to purchase a used Alto Flute and have a choice between an Artley or an Armstrong. Any insights/recommendations is greatly appreciated.

Any chance you could play them each first to see if one is a diamond in the rough?

Thank you for the quick response. Unfortunately, I cannot play either. Do you have any experiences with either that may lead to a preference?
