The sniper looks exactly like the 54mm Seil figure (now OOP). I think it represents the most famous sniper in Vietnam War: Carlos Norman Hathcock II. Carlos was a US Marine Gunnery Sergeant sniper with a service record of 93 confirmed kills.

This is my uncle and I would love to find out how I can go about in purchasing this model. Would probably want to buy several. Could someone please let me know how I could do that? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Search the online vendors as they generally get them in stock first. I know Lucky Model carries D-Toys products. Oh, and welcome to the site.
