Default .45 Auto to 9mm Luger Difference in Recoil?

Hello everyone

I know I'm starting to go on you guys nerves by now, so this is the last question for now.
And it's once again for my novel.

In the book, the main character uses a H&K USP in .45 for most of the time.
But now she switches to a SIG P226R, and I want (her) to describe the difference.

Now, I know that .45 produces more recoil than a 9mm Luger, but I also know that the USP is fitted with some sort of a spring-mechanism to reduce recoil.
Does anyone know if there is that much of a difference (if the USP "kicks" that much harder)?

You be the judge.

To me the 9mm looks much more controllable. As I would expect.
