There were approximately 350,000 Number 4 Rolling Blocks produced between 1890 and 1933. I believe you gun was manufactured in 1923. Look on the left side of the barrel near the receiver for a 2 or 3 letter code. Any Remington made after 1920 has the date code on it.
The No. 4 was chambered for the 22 rimfire, 25 Stevens and the 32 short or long rimfire. An octagon 22.5" barrel was standard and a round barrel was an option on late guns. The barrel is blued with a case colored frame and a walnut stock. Early guns were solid frame. In 1901 a takedown version was introduced that used a lever for takedown. Around 1924 a screw replaced the lever to takedown the gun. The Blue Book values for your gun are:

I like the answer Tom. I just am trying to understand the take down description. The gun has a lever that you can move to take it apart into two sections is that what a take down means? Sorry I didnt mention that in the description earlier. I also looked closely at the left side for a code there is none does this mean it was made before 1920?
The lever to take the gun apart is the takedown lever. I am pretty sure the WP at the end of the serial number is XXXXX date code and that would make it September of 1923. I am not 100% positive, but I don't know of any other reason for it. It was made before 1924 when the lever was changed to a screw.
