My brother has had this shotgun for about 25 years.. it's a good workhorse.. but.
To make a long story short, the wood buttstock got very wet.. think underwater for about a year. When it was handed to me for care while still wet and whole, I noticed a tiny hairline crack about an inch long at the wrist.
The forend and buttstock are very heavy, as can be imagined!
I detail stripped the gun and tended to the metal bits (works fine) and set the wood aside to dry slowly in the not too warm house. At the rate it's drying it should take a couple years.
The crack is widening after a few days.
The question is, what glue/epoxy should I use (I'd like something fairly "thin"/thinable so it'll flow deep into the crack) and at what moisture content should I do the deed?
Oh P.S., they don't make these no more. har

Thanks. I'll probably just inject some Gorilla Glue after it dries up a bit.
