The parts are not stainless. The gun is too old for stainless to have been used. They appear to have either never been blued, or the bluing stripped. 20 seconds in hydrochloric acid will accomplish this. I'm no Mauser expert, so I can't comment on originality.
I would use NevrDull wadding to clean it up. It will take some elbow grease.
