My Century 21" barrel L1A1 with mizzle break is SWEET. I don't notice the recoil. My new build Entreprise L1A1 chopped to 18" is even SWEEEETER! Recoil is no where as bad as some bolt guns, and I don't think it is even as much as my #5. But, that is me. The kickers here are the M44's or the Steyr-Manlicher carbine. I like the feel of the L1 the best personally.

I can't say that I can feel the bolt that much. It is nothing like the AK, probably closer to a Mini14 or SKS, or more like an AR, but without as much of the spring "twang". The M1 recoils less I think, and the L1A1 or STG58 or FAL or G1 (whatever you like) have a recoil. You know that you have a robust rifle in your hands. Simular to the CETME or G3. I descided on the L1 and sold my CETME only because the L1 fit me better. I really like the G3 style also.

Bottom line IMHO, is that the L1 style will recoil very close to the same as the G3 which you know well. The two rifles feel different. The L1 feels handier and piont better in the field to me, especially in the 18" barrel configuration.
