From my reading, it appears there is a version of the wand that requires no sanding/bending. Basically, just unscrew the current gaggia wand and replace with the Silvia wand using the gaggia nut.

Is this true? if so, which version allows for this

I found that the rubber O ring, #50, of the Gaggia stayed up in the tube, so I only needed the wand, no rings.  It is an O ring seal, not overly tight.  Some people have had to bend the old Gaggia wand to get that nut off, I did not.

Thank you. So will V3 not work? http://www.espressoparts.com/R_1054N?&search_id=2020263 I would assume I would have to change the end of the wand as well

Another search :)

You can replace the whole valve portion, but a different valve and positioning.  With a lathe, or finding proper adapters (not very likely) you can do it easily.  I have the V1 and may go to V3, but I have a friend with a lathe to make or adapt the part.  Last few pages of the above thread.
