I don't particularly care for the ripper milling to be honest and would stick to a regular v2 if it was me. I actually traded my G6R for a clone and didn't regret it a bit, but mostly due to the feel. G6Rs seem a little to heavy to me and the LPR doesn't let me grip the gun the way I like. You really can't go wrong with the 3, but the clone is the smoothest (not by a lot), quietest (not by a lot), has a great stock board and is just all around great. The G6R is almost as smooth and quiet as a clone, but is more efficient and debatable more reliable. The beauty of a vic is that it is somewhere in between. Smooth, quiet, efficient, oh and did I say smooth. You are definitely looking at my favorite 3 guns and it's pretty preferential at this point.
I'll also say that I jump back and forth between MacDev and BLAST and love both companies. My last few trades were Droid > '11 G6R > Clone VX'd > Vice > Closer and of all of them I like'd the droid and the closer probably the best.
