Help me ID this upper please

Was trying to get out of a few FAL'S, sold one a few weeks ago, and then came across this L1A1 in a pawn shop for $700. (with- 2 mags)
Had to buy it to try to find out about it.

Pretty sure it was a butthole stock, forend seems like it.
Pistol grip and stock are pebbled.

Upper is grey vs black paint and marked only at the very rear of the right side:
"CIA-SPORTER"
"C XXX"

And that's it.

Doesn't look like no logo Imbels I have (markings) best I can remember.
Has L1A1 mag and bolt release, but L1A1 folding bolt handle doesn't latch. (Needs a little more taken off the bolt handle to fit around the front of the upper.)
Type 3, L1A1 carrying handle

Has L1A1 flash hider, assuming it was done when it was debanned.

Why I can satisfy my curiosity as to who is the maker of the upper?
Thank you.

Sounds like an L1A1 assembled on a CAI imported Argy receiver. Metric or inch mags?

Metric, my L1A1's will take metric mags, (no L1A1 mags with me) but I figure given the charging handle (lack of) fit its metric.
