Redfield also made a 513T base that allows you to mount an Olympic rear. Don't have the number offhand, but I have one.
Both of these are hard to find, but come up every so often on FleaBay.
I'd say VERY hard to find - almost at the level of unobtanium.

I was skeptical about modifying a 40X base, but it would be easier and less expensive than waiting to bid up the price of one of the originals.

I have Viani scope mounts for both my 513Ts and the Viani mount includes an integral iron sight mount that will accommodate either a 75 or an Olympic. Viani raises the line of sight some 3/8". Not my rifle in this pic, but you can get the idea:
