You're real deep into the area of personal preference on this one.  Both coil springs and gas springs have advantages and disadvantages.  I've had both and find I prefer a coil spring.  You may not.  A new gas spring would be a drop in replacement, obviously.  Replacing it with a coil spring you'd need to identify your choice of spring then obtain a spring guide to hold it straight while cocking.  Your initial coil spring will take some measurement and a bit of planning.  Your choice of a spring will affect the power and "shootability" of the gun.
