Cneg34, the selkirk dsp flush stove adapter should work. I had the same issue with my jotul f-600 and the flush stove adapter worked great.

Sorry I'm not sure how that pipe works out. The issue with the dauntless is that the stove flue collar is made for a product to fit on the inside, not the outside as it gets wider as it goes deeper into the stove. So you will need probably a single wall stove adapter then a double wall stove adapter on top of that, then you mount the rest of your pipe from there.
For those who have a Dauntless that they intended to mate to Selkirk DSP pipe, I'll post what I was sold but have not yet tried. It's up at my cabin so perhaps next weekend we will find out. The Stove retailer sold me this "Flush Stove Adapter", P/n is DSP-6-FSA. I assumed they had experience with this as they sell a fair amount of these stoves and I have to imagine the vast majority are using the pipe they sell which is this Selkirk above.

In looking around, I do wonder if this adapter may be better suited for the Selkirk, "DSP Stove Adapter", P/n is DSP-6SA.

Would anyone weigh in? My stove install is several hours from a store! ;)

edit: RAD148 response came in while I was typing mine.

@GrumpyDad stove pipe installed. I did not need any adapters other than the 6" to 8" step up because my chimney (and previous stove) was 8". Need some touch up paint but will probably have the first break in fire tonight since it will be low 50's to upper 40's in my area tonight.

Is this single wall pipe?

Yes, single wall. Didn't have any issues with single wall that was there before as far as draft, and like to have the radiant heat from it.
Does this installation have the required clearances for a single-wall stove pipe installation? That is 18" from the flue outlet center to the wall behind the brick and 14" to the side wall behind the brick. It looks like it might, but the camera angle is deceiving.

Quite honestly, it is a little shy on the rear, 14" on sides is no problem. I had a Defiant 1975 with (very thin) single wall pipe here for longer than I owned the house (over 12yrs). I will see if I can move it out but I have never had an issue with it getting too hot and I have a stove pipe thermometer as well as an AT100 thermo to check the cat, so I will keep an eye out.

@begreen Is brick considered a combustible? It is my interpretation the 18" clearance is to combustible materials although I am sure you know more than myself.

The wall behind the brick is combustible. That's what the clearance is measured to. Unfortunately, one can't see behind the brick and what is happening to combustibles there over time. I would use double-wall stove pipe here for this reason.

I ask because the challenge I had was with double wall. The outside wall cannot recede down enough due to the stoves collar flaring outward. So all double wall installation will require a single wall adapter that goes inside the stove, then a double wall stove adapter on top of that. Then the pipe goes wherever it needs to go from there.
Stove looks nice there.
