Took delivery of a shotgun recently. The butt stock, I don't believe, was split due to shipping damage as I think the box would have reflected that. The box and even the styrofoam is unharmed. The crack/split is right up against the receiver & roughly an inch or so long. Do you think it will progress with use? Might, might not, hard to say?

The gun is a great & old Browning Citori 12 ga

Not enough information...
Where exactly is the crack? Against the flats on the ears it is not likely to split more, but something made it split there so you have to look.

It is very easy to fix a crack like that, but it might not be as easy to fix whatever caused the crack.

Clitoris have a lot of small crack issues like that as a result of wood not having been seasoned long enough. Look at the next figured stock you see and feel the figured areas. They are almost always quite wavy across fiddleback and other highly figured areas due to rushing the drying before use.

If it is somewhere else along the action it is possible something is causing the problem. I found a slice of penny in a Clitori stock which I believe was put there to introduce cast and reduce drop. It caused the wood to crack in two lines...

The crack is on the left ear against the receiver, in the middle of the flat.

I wrote Browning for their input.

Likely been there since the gun was very young and went nowhere...
