I've heard of people sanding the dented area and using an iron to iron it out. Never personally tried this, and depending on the quality of the buttstock I dont know if I would or not.

Heat lamp in some cases. Hard to say, each case is different. I heard of someone using a steam jet, too.

A method that doesn't mess with the finish may be hard to come by.

It depends on the finish. I have removed dents on very expensive guns which had an oil finish. I placed a wet cloth over the spot and placed a hot iron on the cloth forcing steam into the dent. They came out just fine. I defy anyone to point out where the dents were.

I don't think this will work with a finish such as the high-gloss on a Browning, for example.

Like birdogs said, it won't work on a Browning or similar. The finish has to be removed first, so be prepared to refinish the whole stock. For small dings it's not worth the effort because there will always be more show up.
