Before adding weight, consider this.
If the recoil is too much for the youngun', would adding weight make the firearm too heavy?
What caliber is it?
What affect would changing the balance of the firearm have?
Too much caliber can cause a new shooter to develop a flinch that is difficult to overcome. How much experience does he have with firearms?
what danf_fl is asking is on point. how old and how much does he weigh? how tall? might consider a different more recoil friendly caliber to start with. my father started my brother a me with his 243 win. when we were 8 and 9 yo. that is a good kid friendly caliber, but it's loud! another suggestion might be some of the reduced recoil ammo. just some ideas to ponder.
