If you can slide a business card thru all the way, you're in good shape.

Take a NEW $1 bill and if you can slide it from the receiver end all the way to the end of the barrel your okay. However if your barrel is a lightweight type then it will need some support near the tip of the stock.

He's in England so might need to be a pound note, Euro, etc. ;)

Agreed that should be enough clearance, with a synthetic.
