The Tula Arms Plant is one of the world's oldest and largest gun manufacturing facilities. Plant construction began on Feb. 15, 1712, under the decree of Peter the Great. By 1720, this new plant had supplied the Russian Army with 22,000 flintlock pistols and light infantry/dragoon shotguns. By 1749, Tula was engaged in the production of cold steel used for knives, sabres, swords, etc.
Many great names and inventors have been associated with the famous Tula Arms Plant, including Ivan Pushkin, Ivan Lyalin, Ivan Polin, Sergei Ivanovich Mosin, I. Nagant, F.V.
