"It’s not logical, but its real."

Makes sense to me. I'm guessing the ergonomics of the respective weapons fit their builds differently, and hence they experience the felt recoil differently. I also know it's largely psychological, but a lot of people are weirded out by a reciprocating charging handle like on the Carbine or an M-14, and much prefer the AR since all the movement is internal and goes unnoticed.

Felt recoil is definitely difficult to define, it’s best just to accept different strokes for different folks.
