I assume so from the serial number, 06931919-16 , that would make it made in 93 & a 16" frame, God knows when it was sold. 8)

Yes 06 (June) 93 it was produced at this time and sold in the 94 range.
Mine was produced 10 (October) 92 to be sold in 93 as the rts bikes were first entered in the catalogue in 93,otherwise I would say mine was a 92 but they were not in the gt range then.

Rts-1 and 2 both with steel rearends and roller set up for the brake.

The following year the team rts was introduced as was the alloy rear with the rocker that replaced the roller for the rear brake.
And the rockshox mag21 sl ti forks you (and I have were introduced in 94 the 93 ones had mag20's)

But as I said very nice!
