Wood Stock Woes

Well I got a blue streak stock and trigger group in the mail yesterday, and at first glace all looked good, but then I found a crack in the butt (did I just say butt crack?) Anyways, I read some of the wood stock finishing articles here (and on the web) and it looks like the main repair suggestions that I have access to are good ol' carpenter glue, gorillia glue,or armour coat epoxy.

I was hoping that someone might be able to make a suggestion about these chioces, and also if I should make the repairs and then strip the stock for refinishing or strip it first. I wanted to send the stock to PPS for a hurc conversion, but I don't want to end up wasting my money if the stock isn't going to last. My other option is to just try finding another stock and using this one to experiment with finishes.

Sorry about the quality but, here are some pics of the damage:
