THE SESTRORETSK TOOL WORKS Founded in 1721 as a weapons factory by order of Peter the Great this factory was strategically placed along the Sestra River. The factory has produced everything from guns to cast iron gates and railings and even minted coins for a period of time. The most famous of its products is the three-line rifle created by the weapons engineer, Sergey Mosin. This rifle and its subsequent models were used by the Russian army all the way up through World War II.
