It is not a sporter lightweight unless it is stamped on the receiver. It sounds a match target Lightweight 6530 made around 1996 give or take a year. However with no bayonet lug no flash hider configuration it did not come from the factory with a retractable stock. So someone must have changed it at some point.

I thought the same thing checking at ar-15 variations (wikipedia)
the first owner must have changed the stock...
Well at least it looks much better!
