All of the post-1982 (Cross Bolt Safety) 1895's with pistol grip stocks I have seen have checkering. Were any post-1982 1985's with pistol grip stocks made without checkering?

I have seen a few pre-safety 1895's with pistol grip stocks that did not have any checkering.

Thanks.

I'd have to check my early catalogs, but I believe that change took place in the early 1990's; and when Marlin went to checkered stocks, that feature was added to all models of the Marlin lever gun at the same time. I can definitely say that my 1985 model was not checkered, but is now as I sold and replaced my original smooth stocks with a checkered set.
