Problem with 1911 extracting.

I recently purchased a Springfield Range Officer 1911. I have only put about 70 rounds through it. Three times it failed to extract the spent round. On the second to last round it pulled the spent case out just enough to lodge itself into the slide. Kinda like a stove pipe, but not. I watched a video on YouTube on a extractor test. I think the extractor lacks tension. I took it to a gunsmith. He is going to polish the ramp and tune the extractor. If this doesn't work, what else could it be? I have been shooting my whole life and have never had problems like this. Im new to 1911, I have owned Glocks, Sigs and revolvers. Is this a common problem with this platform? Should I be worried?
