Recoil is removed in spec. mode. But in some big organization (e.g. Techlabs at yesterday) they stream from source with actual recoil ingame. But normally when you spectate or watch a demo there is no recoil at all. so I belive there is a command for this.

Many others are also having this problem, just like you my friend. http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3090557
I do not belive theres a command for this though, VALVE will probably fix this in the future i asume.
