Why do you need these pieces? Is the finish ruined or are they broken beyond repair? Pics?
I have one of these guns, when the old finish started to go south I stripped it and refinished it with Tru Oil. Looks good!

Have you shown it to a gunsmith or two to get an opinion? If they say the stock is beyound repair, which is hard to believe it could be BEYOND repair. There are some incredable adhesives out there any more.
The gun is long ago been discontinued so personally I would not spend too much replacing the stocks, you might be able to trade it in for a few bucks and get something newer. No disrespect meant, just trying to keep you from wasting money on a very old gun that you will never recoup.
