Ok, thanks.  What is the best way to remove them without damaging the wood?   Small punch of the correct size?

Use a punch that's a little smaller than the pin.  Shouldn't take much pressure to push them out.

To make a good punch for pins take a finishing nail of a size that fits snugly. They often have a little divot on the head. File the head carefully to be same diameter as shaft. Insert the pointy end into a hole drilled in a short piece of ramrod dowel. The little divot will help center the punch on the pin.

I'm glad you think that I did well.  I want to remove the barrel sometime and see if I can find out who made it.

Don't take the pins out all the way, use a small punch to tap them out just a tad, file them, push them back in and see how the pin sits.

To fix the holes permanently, I would fill wih a tooth pick, shishkabob bob stick, or small wooden dowl rod. Then stain and put some super glue on the ends or epoxy and rub it back as it dries. I don't like holes in my stock ....others mentioned good fixes and they will work too... Just depends on how far ya wanna go.
