Hello!

I have a new stove from Supreme (Novo 18) and the flue opening on the stove is 6 1/8". The stove pipe adapter is supposed to go inside this opening. However the stove pipe adapter I have from Duravent is 5 7/8" so it falls right into the stove and is not flush. See image. Both the stove and the adapter are for 6" pipe.

What is the right stove pipe adapter for a 6 1/8" opening like this? Essentially, I need something that fills the 6 1/8" hole and opens up to a female 6" opening.

Try the stovepipe directly into the flue collar. It could be that no adapter is needed. We don't have one on our stove.

Is this single or double-wall stovepipe?

Single, but I'm ok buying double-wall if that will actually fit.
It sounds like cutting off the crimped end would solve the issue.

The part above the crimp is also too narrow. What do you think about widening the crimp to create a seal?
You're right. I forgot that DuraBlack has the slightly larger female socket end. I'd probably install it normally, crimped end down, no adapter, and stuff some 1/8" flat gasket around to fill the gap.

You absolutely could hammer out the crimped end but gasket is easier
