Tang Sight for Henry Big Boy

I'm about to get a Henry Big Boy .357Mag here shortly (Christmas present to me) I plan on placing a tang sight on it, as my old eyes ain't what they used to be. Can anyone here tell me if a second hole has to be drilled and tapped in order to install the sight properly? Any assistance will be appreciated.

Not sure about a tang sight but a Skinner does real good. Here is mine on my 45-70. I did end up replacing the front sight as well. Existing one was not tall enough. If you go with a Skinner, try it before replacing the front sight, some have to be replaced some don't

Edster, appreciate the comment on the Skinner sight, it's just that I prefer something a little more traditional such as a tang sight. I haven't been able to come up with a good view of the tang on a Henry Big Boy so I was curious..

Not a problem. I understand wanting something a certain way.
