Hmm, my stock GC portafilter has no such thing on it, the body is smooth superior to where the handle comes off the body where the nub is pictured.  Saying you really like doesn't tell me much, maybe you don't care about a few drips here and there while other people do, hence why I asked specifically about fit.  People's ideas of whether they like something are different from person to person.  Perhaps I'm misreading your tone, but hopefully I didn't offend you by asking a question about a product you own when few other people do.

You're at a site called coffeegeek, do you think i'd allow drips of espresso to be wasted? To answer your question, it's a solid seal that rivals the best dentures on the market.

I have no idea what youre talking about regarding nubs. i have the stock GC portafilter and mine has them. maybe we are talking about different nubs as Im referring to the ones that you use to lock to the group.

I'm not offended. ps - "EspressoParts Bottomless Portafilter for Gaggia Classic"

See the image for clarification on what nub I am talking about.  I get that you're saying it fits...this is just for clarity's sake.  

http://www.espressoparts.com/G_59B?&search_id=2175126

Look at the tip of the round, black handle.  Follow the handle towards the circular brass/chrome plated portafilter body.  Arrive at where the black plastic handle terminates and the metal neck of the portafilter begins.  Follow the metal neck of the portafilter to where it meets the circular body of the portafilter that presumably fits into the grouphead.  Where the metal neck of the portafilter meets the circular body is where I am referring to.  Immediately superior to the junction of the neck and circular body is a piece of metal that is not present on stock GC portafilters.  It looks like this would get in the way of fitting into the grouphead.

Looks like these aren't available till Sep. 6 :-(  Thanks for the help, happy brewing.

Oh no, doesn't get in the way. Now I got mine last december and I've doubt it's changed since then. Ill edit this post later when i get home to verify whether mine has something there.

okay so i ordered from that link and mine doesn't have the nub you mention. maybe email espressoparts about it.
