My very trusty Sig Saur 1911 recently went down with a broken extractor after about 2500 rounds. This gun has run as reliably as one could ask for going on 7 years. It's at Sig getting fixed now, but for sure the failure planted that seed in my brain. I know the feeling you are getting after. I am currently shopping for a backup pistol.
Now, don't mistake that for unreliability. The gun had some use and as it was said to me, $hit breaks after a while. But when it was in good order it was reliable. I would never keep a gun that had multiple failures to cycle. I don't care if the gunsmith can make it shoot 100 mags with no failures. If you can't, get rid of it.
