Converting Propane To Co2 Help!

I Got A WE PDW GBB Open Bolt About A Year Ago And Love It! I Have Been Doing More Medium Range Shooting With It And Want To Increase My FPS By Converting To A Co2 Charger. Im Just Not Sure If My Gun Is Compatible For Co2? You Can Buy Co2 Magazines For The Gun Which Makes Me Think That It Is Compatible But I Want To Be On The Safe Side Before I Blow The Money And Or Damage The Gun Itself, So If You Guys Know Or Can Find Out If My Gun Can Handle It That Would Be Extremely Helpful! Thanks!

Extra- I Have Done No Internal Work To The Gun Besides Adding A New Barrel Which Shouldn't Effect Anything

Before sinking money into the CO2 setup, you might want to check out the Classic Airsoft forums-

There are some threads dealing with adapting the WE Scar to CO2, you may wish to read up on to give you a few idea.

It might be a pain, usually the only issue with switching from propane to c02 is that c02 has a higher psi rating which blows the seals and warps most gas reservoirs but since propane has a lower psi the reservoirs should be fine.

However the valve and return springs may need to be replaced with softer springs since the co2 springs are stiffer to compensate for the extra expulsion of pressure.

If not, the gun may not cycle properly and increase the amount of low pressure gas required to cycle high pressure springs causing bad economy.

I hate to be "that guy," but your excessive use of capital letters made me want to read that louder.
As far as increasing FPS, you could get a high-flow valve. It would increase power, but your gas consumption would suffer.
If it looks stupid but it works, it's not stupid.
