David;

Yes. The first Marlin Model 1895S Sporter was made in 1981. When Marlin added the "Cross Bolt Safety", it became the 1895SS Sporter (1984)
In the late 1990's, Marlin added checking to the stock. The last catalog to show this version with the white line spacers and pistol grip is 2000. In 2002 (to 2005), the pistol grip is back but without the white line spacers.
I hope this helps.
