    Default X-15 Drum Magazine

    I have searched and found nothing and when asking the manufacturers they were less than helpful:

    "Good Afternoon

    I've just spoken with the guys, and the 416 mags run off the same platform as an AR15 mag. You should be able to use any AR mag with no problem.
    Hope this helps

    Have a great day"

    So my questions is: Will the x-15 drum magazine made by xproducts work in a 416 receiver with 416 mag release?

    Not quite accurate. For best results in a 416, the magazine should have the "Emag" or "Export Magazine" profile. Emags tend to work in just about everything AR15, while guns that take Emags can be a bit finicky.

    Wondering what happened to your posts???

    Actually looking at pictures of X-15 drum I do not think it will work with HK416 pre-A5 receivers or MR556A1 receivers. Drum "tower" is too short. Maybe it can be made to fit by shaving some material of front-bottom part of tower to make it work, but maybe not. Someone must actually test it, but why bother if Magpul D-mag works with every HK416 and MR series rifles, has bigger capacity and is cheaper?

    I was going to say, if the OP wants a drum mag he should use the Magpul D-60. I have one and it’s certified to work with the 556/416 and does.
