If you wanted to do something with that gun to personalize it(and get your feet wet at gunsmithing), you could refinish the stock. It is a good beginner project and things to do to it are almost endless. If you do not remove much of the wood, you won't really effect the value any.

I was going to suggest the same thing. You could also thing about reblueing it too. If you search the web I bet you could find a detailed schematic of the gun for disassembly and reassembly. That is a fun way to get started.

Is it true if you take a wet shirt and iron over the wood it pulls out the small dents?

It depends on the dent. Usually, it works with more of a "ding". Try it. You shouldn't hurt anything but possibly the finish. Nothing a little sandpaper and poly can't fix.

yes if they are not too deep. best to use a cotton towel or heavy washcloth, wet them and wring it out. use the iron on a high heat and do it slowly. the team is what swells the wood back to it's original state. might take more than one application depending on how deep the dent or ding is.
