The usual failure mode is bending, not usually breaking or chipping, but it can and does happen.
I have seen chipped Glock extractors, but never a bent one (that I was aware of anyway).

Is this just in reference to 1911 internal extractors?
Yes. They loose their shape ( a slight bend)in a 1911 and cause a failure hold the empty case until the ejector can knock it clear of the gun.
Sometimes you get what you pay for, sometimes you only pay more for what you get.
Three shots are not a "group"...they are a "few".

If the Bible is the literal, infallible, unerring word of God...where are all those witches I am supposed to kill? (Exodus 22:18)
