    +1 or if you have a full rail set of qd's optilocks
    ps i have 1" high and ex low blue optilock rings but no bases for sale if you need them offers over 40 plus pp the high were on my sako with the 8x56 now moved to 30mm tube zeiss.

    I would go for one piece optilocks. Medium should be suitable for your 8x56.

    ​ may have what you need if your scope is a 30 !

    If you intend to keep the same scope on the rifle at all times then Optilocks are great, if you may want to swap between day scope and NV then a third eye picatinny rail and third eye mounts would be a good option
