There is a stock repair area on this web site that deals with repairing almost any kind of break. The moderator, candyman, did this for a living for a very long time. He knows his stuff. He repaired a very badly used stock for me and it is great.

Look at this thread.

I've always had good luck with E-poxy but whatever you use, it should be water proof. I had a carpenter friend that fixed a chair seat with a different type of glue designed for strength. Part A was a thin clear liquid which made it easy to get in the crack. Part B was in a spray can. after applying Pt A he just shot a short spray of Pt B on the cracked area and it magically was immediately set up and stronger than the unbroken wood.

Good advise here. Do some research ---you might want a different glue if the wood is oily.

Clamping. Can be an issue on gunstocks, not many flat surfaces and the clamps themselves
can mar the wood. Use surgical tubing. Wrap it tight, it's exerts a huge amount of force without
concentrating it on one spot.

Try tie straps.

Cyanoacrylate glue with a catalyser, Wrap with surgitube to clamp it.

Woodcraft or amazon for the glue. Here you can buy the surgitube at the sporting goods store to hold weights when fishing for steelhead.
