You can use automotiver Plastigage from a parts store. These tiny plastic strings are used to check bearing clearance on crankshafts,etc. Cut a short piece, squeeze it in the action between shell and bolt, lay the mashed piece against the paper tube that the Plastigage comes in and it will be spread out to .004, .006, etc. beside the litmus-paper-like scale.
