Valtion Kivääritehdas (State Rifle Factory in English), or VKT, was a firearms manufacturer in Finland.

HistoryEdit

The company's first product was the Lahti-Saloranta M/26 light machine gun. During World War II, production was decentralized to the Seppälänkangas depot along with SOK-owned factories. Eventually, the company was consolidated into Valtion Metallitehtaat in 1946. Valtion Metallitehtaat eventually became Valmet in 1951 and the unit was then named the Tourola factory. While said company still produced firearms, its main focus switched to tractors and industrial machines. In 1986, the factory was merged with SAKO to create SAKO-Valmet Oy. Production in the factory ended in the early 1990s.
