GBBR CO2 Magazines- need help

Okay so I have a WE PDW running on their original AWSS system and I had propane mags before but switched to their CO2s because it is cold where I live. I thought things would be all fine and dandy but they aren't. I can maybe get 12 to 13 rounds through a single capsule and that is on a good day when I give it plenty of cool down time (several minutes). My gun is also very well oiled and so are the mag seals. Sometimes my gun puts out just enough gas to get a very sad and slow bolt cycle. Any thoughts or reccomendations? Thanks guys.

Also do CO2 mags even have cool down time?

If your outside shooting currently its too cold for a GBBR right now. If your shooting inside a heated area, I would say your valve knocker is opening the mag valve too long or your mag valves are in need of some TLC or replacement. My WE M4 is running CO2 mags and I can get off almost 2 full mags per capsule with my closed bolt system.

Ive been testing in doors. Not exactly the warmest, maybe 55-60 F. What kind of capsules do you use? I know I get less on crossman capsules than these others I buy at walmart. If it is my valve knocker or some mag internals could you possibly give me a hand?

I've never touched or looked at the PDW so I'm not familiar with the operating system sorry. But for your mags try a drop of silicone oil on the valve and work it in by pressing and releasing the valve( on a non gassed mag lol). What are you using to lube the moving parts that could be part of the problem to, maybe not enough friction reduction. Also if your doing full auto burst firing you will waste more gas, I stick to semi unless I really need to go full auto. Also I am using the same capsules as you, except I get mine at Crappy Tire. Also I put a drop or 2 of oil in my mag before I push the capsule in I feel it helps with sealing around the capsule nipple.

I'm not familiar with PDWs either, but here's some general troubleshooting:

Do you still have any green gas mags? You said you "switched", so I don't know if you traded them all away or something. If you do, check to see if the green gas mags are still efficient. If they are no longer efficient, then there might be a problem with your gun. Eg a cracked nozzle is letting all the gas escape, or something.

I did give away my gg mags. The pdw system is pretty straight forward as well. I have the closed bolt too. I drop silicon oil and I use 100 weight to oil my gun. I also stick to semi. Could I visually tell if a nozzle was cracked?

Also I have two of the CO2 mags and neither get one mag of shots from a capsule and both have bad cool down problems. One is new as of a few weeks ago. The other about a year and a half ago.
