We evaluated orbital ($$m_{rm orb}$$) and spin magnetic moments ($$m_{rm spin}$$) of Co$$_{x}$$Fe$$_{4-x}$$N (x = 0, 3, 4) epitaxial thin films grown by molecular beam epitaxy using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism, and discussed the dependence of these values on x. Site-averaged $$m_{rm spin}$$ value of Fe atoms was deduced to be 1.91 $$mu$$$$_{B}$$ per atom, and that of Co atoms to be 1.47 $$mu$$$$_{B}$$ per atom in Co$$_{3}$$FeN at 300 K. These values are close to 1.87 $$mu$$$$_{B}$$ per Fe atom in Fe$$_{4}$$N and 1.43 $$mu$$$$_{B}$$ per Co atom in Co$$_{4}$$N, respectively. This result implies that the Fe and Co atoms in the Co$$_{3}$$FeN films were located both at corner and face-centered sites in the anti-perovskite lattice. Spin magnetic moments per unit cell were decreased linearly with increasing x in Co$$_{x}$$Fe$$_{4-x}$$N. This tendency is in good agreement with theory predicted by the first-principle calculation.
