I am negotiating the purchase of a #4 Remington Rolling Block .22 S, L, & LR, :confused::confused:and am trying to find the date of mfg. I have looked in all of my reference books and cannot pinpoint its birthdate. It is serial # 824546. Can anyone help me find the mfg. date? Thanks in advance!! John Wesley Hardin

You can go to the Remington site and email them your s/n. They will give you a year. That is about how accurate they can be.
Or call:

Not well versed on them but mine has a letter and the the #. Might check and see if a letter is present.

Are you sure it's a Model 4 ? I have a Model 4 in .32 Rimfire in the 355,XXX range,supposedly one of the last few made in 1933 as I recall.

Other than that, I'm clueless on the range of the serial number.
