I'm considering dripping and tapping the side of my ruger 96/44 to install a side mounted peep sight such as the Williams 5D. How feasable is this without an extensive array of gunsmithing equipment? What tools would I need to proceed with this to do a nice job? All suggestions welcome.

You will need a drill press, proper bit, proper tap, and, if you screw up, some welding equipment to fill the hole and start over ;) Your smith would be a better choice.
