How common is having the extractor break? Happened to me on the range today. My pistol wasn't extracting the fired case from the chamber. I came home, took the extractor out and found it in two pieces. The hook is fine, the extractor fractured in between the hook and the "bump". Granted, this is a Charles Daly 1911 and the internal parts are said to be of very poor quality. I am still relatively new to the 1911. I have fired 6k+ rounds and this is the first problem I have encountered. Any thoughts? (I already know that the Daly is a cheap gun, I just want to know if aftermarket extractors can fail after 6k+ rounds)

thanks in advance for any help/info/advice/tips,
gf

It's probably a cast part, and cast extractors, by consensus, are the pits. They're supposed to be made from "spring steel", and Cylinder & Slide makes the only one on the market that I'm aware of.
