Lamy 2000 barrel crack

I have a lamy 2000 multi pen that has a fairly large crack that runs almost half of the circumference of the threads. Does anyone know of a suitable repair method for this material, or if you might be able to send me in the direction of someone capable of doing the needed repair? Or is a replacement barrel my best option?

In my experience cracked threads/barrels usually can't be satisfactorily . . .

. . . repaired and ultimately end up having to be replaced.

The problem is that (especially on the threads but also elsewhere in the barrel) a pen is subject to some forces during closing and removal of the cap and during writing as well, and sooner or later the crack tends to separate if you've tried to glue it; and then of course it will usually grow over time until it becomes large enough to permanently mechanically (and cosmetically) compromise your Fine Writing Instrument .

I'd just replace the barrel if at all possible.
