Question New Vice owner, prob dumb grip question

My Vice has some transparent blue panel grips i hate. I like the new G6R wrap around grips but am having trouble figuring out if they will fit.
1. Do I have a G5 or ...?
2. If a G5 will the G6R grips work? If need mods what are they?
3. Is difference between G5 & G6R no macro line?

Sorry if this has been covered before and thanks.

Is a Vice not the same as a G5?

The vice is a gen5 as is the protege.

I believe the top 2 screws fit but you'll have tho tap the frame for the bottom screws.

There are more differences in the gen5 and gen6 than that but that's one of the more obvious.

Top two screws will fit on G6R grips, bottom will need a new hole drilled and tapped for it.
