Red Baron's P08 Vs. Standard P08

Is there REALLY a statistical difference between Red Baron's P08 and the standard version of the P08? Apparently, it's always been said that the Red Baron variant has more recoil, but better damage drop-off ranges. Of course, one should never fully rely on the in-game "stats." Skimming the data browser, I can't find any different "gun sway" or ammo files regarding this variant.

At release there was no effective differences between weapons and their reskins (like P08). Unless DICE has changed their stance on these weapons, I doubt they have any difference compared to the vanilla versions.
Links to users' thread list who have made analytical/statistical/mathematical/cool posts on Symthic:

  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included
