IMHO it will be too big and heavy for a twelve year old to master. Much more sensible to go with a smaller & lighter model to get him started, some very good prices available ex Europe (delivery no problem) with the current exchange rate.
HW30S = stock sized for a smaller person, lightweight, super trigger etc. Euro 159.00 new from Holland.
