Default use oxy fittings for propane?

My quick connect and flashback arrestor for my gas are finally kinda dented. I have an oxy set up that is extra and I have barely used it. Can I use that as a replacement? Are they virtually the same (except one is green and the other red) <OR> can I buy JUST the fittings for the gas?

The fittings are the same, they just have right and left hand threads.

You can buy just oxy or just propane, I just can't remember from who.

I usually have to order mine when I buy just one side, oxy or Acet, and I get them from AirGas.
It is not a good idea to swap one for the other as inattention later might cause big problems.
