If you're going to paint it you can just degrease really well and apply the paint over the bluing.
The remaining bluing will aid in rust prevention.

The best pre-paint treatment is to bead blast the metal. This leaves a rough finish that gives the paint a "tooth" to bond to and greatly improves adhesion.
