I have been searching around and found 2 vortex flash hiders for dpms rifles with different lengths. Both are threaded the same. can anyone tell me if they have one on their SASS and which one it is. Also....did u use the original washer or discard it and go with no washer?

Not a SASS but it is a .308, you get the idea...
No washer required, it snugs itself against the shoulder.

ETA: the 1000V and the 1000V-N are probably the two you are talking about, but they are the same size. The only difference is the thread depth, i used a 1000V.

Noveske 6.8 barrels have a shorter thread length i believe, similar to most DPMS .308 barrels.
Not really sure what the shallower threads accomplish on the -N Vortex though...

Created for Gemtech's HVT/Quicksand, I didn't use any washers:

I'd probably go with This One Not sure why the DPMS threading is a shallower .625", but apparently the .730" depth is Mil-Spec.

You are correct. I actually talked to Mr. Smith on the the phone today and he said that the Noveske and DPMS use the shorter thread length.
