Default Model 11 stock and forend

I have drug out my old Model 11 and have been doing a little rabbit hunting and decided to "spruce up" this old auto loader. Now this was my grandfathers who passed it on to me when he died, he used it a good bit while it was his and it got a little beat up. Anyway I took off the barrel and recoil spring and other to clean and i noticed a crack on the top back of the forend where it meets the receiver between the mag tube and the barrel, and then this happened........

I then realized that the little nubs that go into the receiver between the barrel and mag have broke off.

Since I don't have the original nubs or whatever they are to glue back in could I simply drill out the hole and use a dowel rod or something as an alternative?

Also I would like to do something to the stock and forend itself. Both are pretty banged up.

What is a good way to strip the old finish off without really hurting the wood?

Ive heard of using and iron and a damp cloth, should I do this before or after stripping the old finish?

Any hints, tricks, and tips will be greatly appreciated.

Numrich gun parts has replacement wood for your gun,or you can also put Ramline synthetic stocks on it and then not have to worry about splitting the forearm if you don't have the friction rings setup for the type of loads you are shooting.
Here's a link-http://www.e-gunparts.com/products_new.asp?CatID=5642

This is what the synthetic stocks look like on one that has been parkerized-

I thought about a synthetic but I was hoping to keep the original wood.

It was your Grandfather's, if it holds sentimental value, it would be better to restore/repair it rather than replacing the wood.

Thats what I would like to do, this is actually the first gun I ever shot (5 years old) and Ive had it all my life.

But there where it chipped off how could I repair that? A strong wood adhesive?

Do you have the chip? If you do, send me all the pieces, stock and forearm and I'll repair and refinish them for you. I'll use a TruOil finish on it.

No charge, I enjoy doing the work. You can pay for the shipping. PM me if you'd like.

Here's a link to my 1917 Eddystone project. There's some pictures in there showing the refinished stock. http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f35/1917-eddystone-project-18556/index3.html
