i have the necessary free xp collected to research and use the second gun of the conway.

but should i?

dpm and prem penetration values of the second gun seem very subpar n paper.

The 5.5 inch is a good gun. Not as accurate as is the 120mm but accurate enough. Do not use the free xp to do it though as using the 120mm stock gun is one of the most comfortable grinds. I have used both guns and prefer the 600 alpha of the 5.5 inch but still use the 120mm for variety.

120mm is the better gun by far.

That and the big gun locks your turret traverse to 90 degrees to each side. I found it more of a hinder then helpful.

Alpha > DPM, the big gun is better IMO purely because the tank cannot sit around and use it's DPM, plus neither gun can you snap shot because the bloom is terrible. 

 

You have to play a medium range support role with the tank because the platform is so bad, so IMO better to use a gun that maximises your damage from your exposure.  Plus on city maps it's much easier to trade with other tanks, especially more paper ones.
