Redersoli's springfield 1861 comes not blued

my question is    is it prone to rust more than a blued one and is it a hard to keep it rust free,  and any special cleaning procedure?

I'd keep it oiled with a non petroleum based oil like olive oil or the like.Others may use something else but I use non petroleum based lubes and oils.Being not blued it will eventually take a patina whether you want it or not from honest wear.
