Use plane old wood glue it's stronger than any wood you can glue together. If its a clean break just glue it and clamp it wipe off any excess with a damp towel make sure the two pieces are clamped tight and even . I have repaired stocks like this many times the Elmer's wood glue or other brand works best if you use a epoxy or gorilla glue it doesn't work as good you usually can see the break and it makes clean up a mess. Regular wood glue cleans up with water if you do it before it dries. The spot glued will be stronger than any wood you can glue together .

jniedbalski. While you are correct in everything you said the only bad part is regular wood glue in not water proof or even water resistant. Also after a length of time it is likely to let loose.

Regular wood glue will not come appart unless it sits for days months wet. If the gun is going to see this kind of wet weather they have out door or weather proof wood glue sold side by side the regular wood glue. Semi trailer flooring is made with oak strips glued with regular wood glue. I have a table top on a bench outside for over 8 years and it hasn't came apart yet. We get at times a lot of rain in the spring here. Now I don't know why but soft wood like pine can come unglued when left wet for awhile.

I had a Mosin stock repaired by a local woodworking shop, the crack blends in with the run of the grain and is not visible. It was a clean break such as yours and took the guy about ten minutes to line it up, place the glue and clamp it, but 24 hours to dry.
