Does anyone know if the dovetails on any of these adapters fits the ONAG XM dovetail?

I do not think that any would fit.

From information here is the ONAG XM dovetail specification:

You may want to consider preciseparts.com, they have all our products on file and can make any adapter you may need.

Awesome. Thanks, Gaston!

I'm aware of PreciseParts, however they are very expensive, have a relatively long lead time, and seem to be unwilling to help with design (I'm assuming to avoid liability, which I understand from a business perspective, but it makes them very 'rigid').

I'm not saying they are bad, as they are very convenient and make good parts. I would certainly never steer someone away from them due to variety and quality of work as there is certainly a market for their services.

With that being said, if I can find an off-the-shelf substitute for them, I will welcome it with open arms 😁.

Thanks again
