You remove the stock and check the bottom of the barrel? Bluing is not a rust preventative. It just looks pretty.
Oh contrare. The hot bluing process is a form of controlled iron oxide, and it does protect. Not as good as stainless, but it is a protective finish. I do take the action out occasionally and every time I get it wet, and no rust.
