Spring guide hiting cylinder

Hello. I am currently upgrading my sniper rifle and just bought a new spring guide; however, it is grinding and chewing up my cylinder and I can't figure out why. It is a 7mm angel custom guide and is with a 7mm stock spring and with the stock piston. I have spent several hours trying to figure out why but with no luck. My rifle is a TSD SD700 which is a VSR-10 clone, and all of the other VSR cylinder parts work fine with it as long as I use the plastic spring guide.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
P.S. I hope this goes in the VSR section, mods please move if it doesn't.

It is hitting the sides of the cylinder whenever the bolt is moved. Removing the bearings on the guide helps but it still grinds.
Yes. The spring guide is scraping/grinding against the wall.
Mine is rubbing hard enough to shave pieces of the cylinder off. It helps if I take off the bearings but but it still grinds. I have a feeling it has something to do with the guide getting off center, as in the long axis of the guide is skewed in relation with the central axis of the cylinder.
I fixed the issue. the problem was that the spring guide stopper. the hole int he guide stopper was not in the center of the cylinder, therefore, the spring guide was being held against the side of the cylinder. The fix was actually quite easy all I did was file down the tab that stopped the spring guide stopper from going to far into the cylinder.
