Once the bluing is stained by rust, you cannot get rid of the mottling without rebluing. Just keep it oiled and shoot it every now and then to remind yourself to oil it.

44-40 is cold blue, and crappy cold blue at that. I used to use 44-40 to discolor new bluing on old guns to make them look old again. Keep it far away from your rifle.
