The gun may still run but the extractor is not optimal.

Yeah. That's so not true.
I agree with Constantine. In my experience with SIG pistols, including the 1911 iteration, the idea that "the geometry of the external extractor is off" has absolutely no merit in a general sense, imo. In a specific sense, I can't argue. Any design could have potential problems in terms of execution on an individual pistol but to categorically claim that the SIG external extractor design is intrinsically deficient flies in the face of reality, at least when it comes to the experience I've had with firing many, many SIG pistols.
