I am usually one of those against doing any mods to an original. Hell it gets next to me when somebody bobs a barrel on a repro but I can do nothing but praise your work in bringing these fine old guns back from the dead or near dead. Kudos to you.

Well then,  why not "inlet" a "less than full length" stiffener so that none of the repair shows? The original break line will be evident.

What I would do is spread the crack and work some epoxy into it and clamp it tight until it dries.

By creating a shallow cavity on the backside and laying in a metal or wood "stiffener" (filler that adds strength), you won't have to disturb the outside surface.  Doing it shy of "full length", it would definitely stay hidden.
  Setup would be like Hawg (hey Hawgie!!) suggests which would give you a  solid piece. Carefully inletting a shallow recess and epoxying the stiffener in place would complete the repair.
