I started out making a couple pins for two of the holes on mine, but the pot metal is pretty soft, and I was afraid they'd fall out.  I still have those two in, but for the others I used epoxy.  

For epoxying it, I used the 5 minute epoxy from Wal Mart.  Pretty strong stuff, holds quite well.  I just drilled out the pins currently in place, then coated both parts of the stock assembly with epoxy.  When you put them together though, make sure the stock is on right.  Mine is slightly tilted to the right because I ignored this step...   After that I just sanded off the excess epoxy on the outside.  Hope that helps.

You could try some short roll pins and peen them over, that should hold pretty well.

I just fixed it today, found a couple of screws, put them in and cut the heads off flush.  It seems pretty solid now.
