You may want to move your post to the "Firearms Research" section of the board. Also, pictures would help.

and, contrary to what some people think, it is not a sign of a gun returned to factory for repair, etc. The Brophy reference states that for some years every gun that left the Marlin factory had the star to show that it was a fully inspected and approved, quality Marlin firearm. About the stocks.....if you replace the wood, keep the original, of course to put back on in case you, or the next owner wishes to.

"...can I get high end stocks..." You can't. Mind you, a stock doesn't get higher end than good walnut. Go here. http://www.gun-parts.com/marlin/
