Do any Silvia owners here own one of the VST baskets that sit flush to the bottom of the Rancilio OEM bottomless portafilter?

Kinda like this.

I have the 18g basket, and it comes pretty close, so I would say a 20g would do it...then again I believe it is only the 22g that they warn about needing a bottomless portafilter for, so you might need that one to get it that flush...

 
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

Why are you concerned about it being flush?  You should be using the size basket that suits the kind of drinks you make...

Check out VST 22g filter in Rancilio commercial bottomless pf.

I have the triple OEM basket but it's not as deep.  I really like how it looks flush but my 21 g triple doesn't come that close.  I guess I'm hoping one of the VST's work. Another excuse to buy one :P  ddubick I drink a variety of drinks.  Mostly double and triple Americano's  My drink of choice is a med triple Americano.  2 oz triple in 8 oz hot water.  It's a caffeine rocket!

with my triple OEM basket it is exactly as the image you posted.

for the purpose of bottomless use, it really does not matter which basket you use,
use it with your favorite one.

and BTW, the image you posted show a genuine Rancilio PF and not OEM (-:
