Description of the rifle (action type, patent dates, rimfire/centerfire, chambering designation or bore diameter info, length, stock design, magazine, hammer/hammerless, etc.) and photos would really help. Hard to say how many 32 caliber rifles Remington made.

It's my WAG that your Remington .32 is a Remington #4 Rolling Block Boy's Rifle.

If it is, Remington made some 356,000 of them from 1890 to 1933 - so, since you're keeping the SN to yourself, you can either exterpolate it's DOM from that period or call Remington for the DOM.

Yes, but they also made the cheaper No 6 in .32 rimfire, too.

WAG = wildassguess

Sure, Remington did make the Model 6 single-shot available in .32 - but AFAIK only with a 20" round/tapered bbl.

The Remington Model 25 was yet another made in .32 cal (.32-20) - and IIRC the early versions had octagonal bbl, as in the OP.

But those are facts, not a guess - which is what I took, in the absence of anything more significant from the OP in the way of identifying characteristics for his rifle.

whaddyasay, kmsqrd2 ? ;) :D
