It sounds like you have a Remington No.4. This is the only model that is in .22 cal and has a 22" barrel. Here is a great source to get a new stock:

can you date the rifle based on serial number?

Expert:  Jon replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately, It appears that Remington did not keep very good records of the serial numbers in those years. I have not seen and setail numbers released for these rearly Remingtons.
