Where did the Bolsheviks get their weapons?

In September 1917, General Kornilov (who was the Commander-in-Chief of the army), attempted to overthrow the Provisional Government - this was known as the Kornilov Plot. This is because Kornilov wanted to continue the war with Germany without government interference. Kerensky, (who was Prime Minister of Russia at the time), had no army, and so he had to arm the Bolsheviks and use them to protect the Provisional Government and Petrograd. The Bolsheviks stopped Kornilov and saved the Provisional Government, but refused to give back their guns - they were not called the Red Guards.Hope this is helpful
