They are both stunners Carl, with my preference towards the early 90's model.

There is a definite British style from that period that is really starting to grow on me.

I'll add a group shot of my 3:

Left to right we have the '87 Saracen Kili Flyer (Full Deore 1 setup and handbuilt lugless brazed Reynolds 531 frame and forks) only short of it's new decals, been in the family since about 1989.
Next we have my '92 Claud Butler Antaeus 653 Magnum (XT/XTR/Maguras and handbuilt lugged Reynolds 653 Magnum frame) owned by me since new.
Next we have my '89 Raleigh 531 Lightweight Team Rep (Suntour XC Comp and Handbuilt lugged 531 frame) recent addition but I have wanted one since '89.

I'm not 100%, i think so - there are more pictures on my build thread - link above.

the forks are not P2s so I would assume you are correct.

I'm just pleased to have got it built, at least now its not quite so vunerable, getting knocked and chipped in the general garage mess
