Unhappy need help with stock repair

Can anyone help me with a problem on my original walnut stock? I have a 1970 10/22 that someone has pulled off the barrell band not to gentlely. It has left a 1/8 inch wide trench about 1 inch long about 1/16 inch deep. Has any one else had this problem,and how did you fix it? I would not prefer to sand the entire stock down as the rest of the finish is great. I would appreciate any help i can get on this. Thanks in advance. I think i will get a plastic one so this does not happen again.

Some times you can raise the grain with a damp cloth and an iron. If the wood is dented, but obviously it cant help a gouge. Good luck with it.
