My KWA MP7 cracked pretty much the exact same place. Super glue actually seems to be holding up pretty well. I don't game it anymore but it's holding up to the basement commando-ing for the most part.

It should be fine as long as it's an AEG barrel (assuming you have a KA AEG). Be careful taking the barrel nut off. Use the right tool and a vice if you can. Some are torqued very tightly.
