That is a repairable crack!
Before my stroke I welded hundreds of M1 Garand receivers and had no problems. I do re-harden the receivers after the weld. Even after I welded a rear lug on them. TIG weld would work for that.
The only thing you need to avoid is the porosity in the weld so run heavy argon with the weld.
