vsr 10 bolt keep locking back

hello first time posting on this site. I bought a tm vsr 10 about a year ago and i have upgraded most of the gun. Lately i have added an AA 90 degree trigger because i had a problem with the old 45 degree trigger i was using where the bolt would lock back every now and then and i would have to disassemble the gun to release it. It got to the point where i couldnt use my gun for months until i could afford to buy the 90 degree trigger. Anyways i fitted the new trigger on to the gun fine and it worked quite well for the first few shots. Eventually i noticed that the boltpull was very grindey and had a horrible scratching sound when i pulled it back and it got so bad that i couldnt pull the bolt back all the way however this only happend every now and then but soon i got the same problem i had with my old trigger where the bolt would lock back and the only way to release it was to disassemble it or push it really hard until it snaps forward. i thought it was my spring guide but i got a new one and the problem still seems to persist. I took the gun apart over and over again cleaning it and applying grease in the correct places. I checked if the return springs have snapped but nope, and most of my parts are brand new pretty much. I wanted to post this because i havent seen the issue anywhere else and i havent been able to use my gun for months even after investing alot of money to fix it.Thank you for taking the time to read this long post.

nah man, i thought this may be the problem but i took the rail off at one point and the issue happened still. Thank you anyway.
just like to say that this problem doesnt happen all the time. Some times the puul/push can be very smooth and the gun will shoot fine but other times it just locks back and i have to pull the trigger to let the bolt snap forward. id say it happenes every 2/5 times if i am lucky.
will do. I took some pictures of the inside of the cylinder, trigger and a pic of the spring guide itself. maybe someone can point something out that isnt normal. I will post them tomorrow after college. Thank you again for the help
so i found out what is causing the scraping sound when i pull the bolt back, it also may have been the problem with it locking back. My cylinder is wobbles side to side when i pull the bolt handle up and down AND when i pull the bolt back. This causes the cylinder channel to scrape against the sides of the spring guide stopper and maybe the piston sear. I can prevent the scraping sound from happening by trying to pull the bolt back as straight as possible which can be extremely difficult but when i do pull the bolt straight it is really smooth (the way it should be). This is made even harder because i use a scope with really low mounts and it makes it almost impossible to pull it straight. Anyone have any ideas how i or anyone else with the issue could fix it?
