Today I got the JM GRT kit installed in my Diana 54. It feels and sounds a lot smoother. Also installed a new Apex seal.

For those who are interested;
Before tune-- Baracudas 869fps (17.8ft/lbs) | JSB Exact Heavy 960fps (20.9ft/lbs) (roughly, I lost my data for the JSB's!)
After tune---- Baracudas 761fps (13.6ft/lbs) | JSB Exact Heavy 857.63 (16.7ft/lbs)

Why is there such a difference in energy between the two pellets? Is it because the Baracudas have a tighter fit?

I'm taking it to the range tomorrow to do some paper punching, so I'll update with some accuracy results.

So your velocity actually dropped after the tune?

Yes.
The kit isn't a velocity tune, it is an accuracy tune. It is a minor sacrifice in order to smooth out the gun and make it more accurate (I'll check this tomorrow).
I e-mailed JM that accuracy to me is most important, and he recomended the GRT kit.
For power, JM also has the Monolith kit. This kit has a full power spring, but from what I've been told (by JM, as well as others) it won't provide the other benefits to the same extent as the GRT/GSI kits.
