In the XVI century, in spite of the rapid development of firearms, it continues to exist and shielding armament - Russian soldiers as before bear bakhtertsy, kolontari, zertsala and, of course, hauberk.
 
Some Russian armors of the XVI century have their interesting fate. Thus, in the Moscow Armory Chamber is stored hauberk with the small copper plate, on which there is inscription "prince Petrov Ivanovich shuyskova". The boyar also of governor Peter Ivanovich Szujski perished in 1564 during The livonskoy war. They assume that precisely this hauberk tsar Ivan groznyy sent into the gift Yermaku and that precisely in it sank in Irtysh the conqueror of Siberia, when in the summer of 1584 his force were destroyed by the Tatars of khan kuchum. In 1646 survived two its owners hauberk was seized by the Russian governors in one of the Siberian towns and again returned into the tsarist arsenal.
 
In the XVI century the substantial part of the Russian armor as before was manufactured in Moscow, where by government edicts migrated craftsmen from others it was municipal, also, along outskirts of which, as Herberstein testifies, was pulled the long number of the "houses of blacksmiths and other craftsmen, who act by fire". The blacksmith and bronnoye production was concentrated then in the region of Kuznetsk bridge, present Bronnykh streets and old Kuznetsk settlement in the boilermakers, where during our days at the earthwork was found the epitaph of a certain of Grigoriy Dmitriev, the "son of kol'chuzhnika", dead in 1596. Because of this finding it became known that somewhere in the second-half of the XVI century was isolated the new variety of bronnikov of kol'chuzhniki, which specialized exclusively in the preparation of armor from the ferrules. From the use of a similar armor Russian army will finally refuse only at the end of the XVII century, at the dawn of Petrovskiy time.
