Marksman Rifle Sight Recoils?

Not sure where else to check and although I hate posting without something to contribute myself hopefully someone here will know. Someone added onto the Wikipedia that the default sights reduce the Viewkick on the DMRs by 15%. I've tried several DMRs with RDS and Holos and they all seem to be all over the place and it doesn't leave me wanting to run them. Although I haven't tried the default sight myself any confirmation or rebuttal leads into the next question. In BO2 the Iron Sight attachment reduced the ADS time and sway for the Ballista and I was curious if it had any similar effects on DMRs in Ghosts and I personally lack the tools to test subtle changes like this >.< heck in my old age I struggle to tell the differences between Quickdraw and not having it.
Any help or info would be appreciated, thank you.

The only thing that I can really say to you is that in my own experience, I felt as if I had much higher recoil with the thermal hybrid. Iron sights/red dot the recoil isn't bad imo. The default sights do appear to recoil less than the others. Never tried any other sights. I've been wondering myself if the iron sights provide any advantage. The in-game stats show it has higher mobility but the in-game stats aren't always totally reliable. I haven't noticed a difference between red dot and iron sights.
