From comments it appears that recent versions did not manifest recoil at all. Now with the latest version it is back. Is the current system operating as planned and intended? I am not a big garage tinkerer, I just build the best killing machines I can and fine tune out the deficiencies.
The physics had a rework and recoil has a bigger effect because of it. Cyber did mention that he’s going to be reducing the actual recoil numbers on the weapons themselves to bring it closer to how it was.
