Alternatively, sometimes you get better "camouflage" by putting a drop of thin or medium CA on it and sanding with ~220 grit so the sanding dust gets caught and glued in the crack.

(Keep the sandpaper moving so it doesn't get glued to the barrel.)
I use a variation of this...I take some of the shavings, mix with ca glue..apply ca glue to and in the crack then put the shaving on. Let it sit for awhile and sand smooth. It has sometimes made the crack completely invisible.
