    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.

    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.
