yeah, but its not called a 981T it's like a 81 or 80 or 880 or something like that. That is a great find. I have an 981t and its fantastic. My only complaint is that there is no option for a wood stock now or even to replace it with one. If i was you i would pick it up in a heart beat. It's all what you like though.
Guys please correct me if i'm wrong about the wood stock model numbers ( which i'm sure i am.)
Marlin has a laminated stock for the 983ss that will fit the 981t with very little fitting. The cartridge lifter pivot pin is wider on the 981t and so a little bit of the stock on each side needs to be inletted.
