There are 3D printed guides available on the internet at various places. Some also shim the cylinder.

If you're gonna use lube I'd suggest WD40 PTFE dry lubricant spray. Won't make a mess.

I have a POM cylinder sleeve, and I donīt use any grease. I didnīt use any grease on the stock glide rings either.
Just test it out, it wonīt do any harm

If I had a choice I’d choose a high quality delrin sleeve which I believe Masada uses in his receivers (correct me if I’m wrong). Tech T is my favorite lubricant usually but DON’T USE A LOT, a little bit goes a long way!!

Ya I switched to POM (Delrin) for my sleeves. Originally it was PTFE, but machining and fitment was very difficult so I ended up switching.

Both materials (POM and PTFE) have good lubrication properties (PTFE being better) so you should not have to lube the sleeves. If you must, a dry PTFE lube as mentioned earlier is probably your best option.

I used that purple light sleeve from your YouTube video and it works well.

I've just recently installed a set of these;
https://www.longbowbb.co.uk/product-...de-ring-sleeve

I didn't have much if any wobble in the first place but there is absolutely none now and the bolt pull is the same if not slightly better and that's without any lube.

Another way to take out wobble is simply cut a little slit in your current rings with a hack saw (carefully). Then put a layer or two of tape in the receiver where the guide rings go (Shims). Then install the guide rings back in.

Make sure that if you are using grease on the guide rings or cylinder, that you make an ejection port cover. If you do not, dirt will stick to the cylinder and eventually scratch it. My cylinder is many years old and still looks new.
