I was just looking into how the nitro gas ram systems work and the advances they're making in that direction and was wondering if it would be possible to convert a spring airgun to a gas ram and would it be worth it? Just curious, Thanks.

The answer is "it depends", it depends on what you're looking for, the rifle you're converting, what piston you're getting etc.
I did a conversion to my IZH-60 to a gas ram. It doesn't buzz or torque anymore but it also kick like a mule in that small light weight stock.

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

In general if your piston has a center latch rod (i.e. Diana) there's no way to convert, but crosman style piston is easy. Gas ram doesn't make the gun jump in random direction but the forward/rear jump is stronger. While spring tension decrease as it expands, gas ram has almost the same tension throughout its travel range, which makes it harder to cock as well.

I think it makes accurate shot easier especially in higher power rifles due to its more controlled jump, but there are others dislike it.
