I am very impressed with this G36K footage;

As you can see, the recoil is very low. Judging from the reaction of the shooter, it appears the shooter is not putting heavy effort to control the gun, even when shooting in full auto.

It looks like he is shooting a toy gun.

What do you think?

You are right, the G36 recoil is not heavy. That is not the whole story, however. While recoil is not heavy it is quite sharp and 'choppy', certainly sharper than an M16, SIG 55?, Valmet or AUG. What makes the recoil even more noticeable is the fact that the ****e 3X optic has extremely limited FOV and short eye-relief and sticking your nose close to it can often result in a sharp rap making the shooting experience a bit unpleasant.

Maybe it's just me but .223's aren't exactly known for the recoil. I'd almost say it's the cartridge more than the gun. I was able to do a mag dump on an Ar and keep most of the rounds in about a 6 inch circle at 15 feet.
