I believe it is a cast receiver. If so, it's probably easier, safer and cheaper to replace it. If it's a family heirloom, I'd permanently or temporarly disable it (remove firing pin, plug chamber, etc) and make a wall hanger out of it.

I wouldn't even attempt to repair that.

You can't even weld that back together, because you can't weld on cast metals.

Well, you CAN... If you're really dedicated to do it... But it won't hold fer crap.
