I know these are leupold rings and base, its says so on the base, but it does not match any of the styles listed on their website...I bought them about 5 years ago and am trying to figure out if I will need new rings when I switch out the scope.
 
 
 
sorry for the poor photo quality.

 They are the Dual-Dovetail rings. Each ring locks into the base with a quarter-turn twist before installing the scope into the saddle. To remove them: Remove the top straps, lift the scope out and turn the rings counter-clockwise as viwed from the top. Use a snug-fitting wrench near the base.
 Put a dab of grease on the studs before reinstalling them to prevent wear on the stud.
 Good solid system.
 
Edited to add: You probably will only have to remove the top straps to replace the scope.
