Default Remington 597 jamming

So I just cleaned this the other day, wiped it down, and added a very light coat of oil to the bolt and guide rods. Today while shooting it it kept jamming after about 100rds. Any idea whats causing this?

On the second picture heres what happened, it extracted the round but didnt eject so I pulled the charging handle(bullet didnt land there I placed it)
The gun tried to rechamber a round but the brass from the previous shot was still stuck in the chamber.

Could be the ammo, could be the mag, or it could be something with the gun itself.

What kind of ammo were you using? What kind of mag? Hvae you tried the gun with other mags? Does anything on the bolt look damaged or worn in any way?

Was it only jamming once every 100 rounds, or did it just start constantly jamming after 100 rounds?

Jamming like every other mag after 100 rds, I was shooting Remington golden bullets and used factory mags. I tried other magazines all had this problem some more than others so it seems

It really looks like your extractor is missing. Are you sure it didn't get accidentaly removed. I expect to see the extractor, a plunger, and a spring as pointed out in the picture below

Your right! It probably is missing! Ill have to make sure in the morning. I have no clue how it could have came off though
. Since its most likely missing, what parts do I need? A spring and new extractor right ? My brother and his friend (who aren't good with guns) shot all the guns today. Needless to say, the 1911 has new marks on it and the mag wont drop freely. Now my extractor is missing. At least my shotguns ok! Lol Guess we need to pay even closer attention to them. Although, I'm probably the one who lost it.

My 597 used to jam with hollow Points in the plastic magazine. With cheaper ammo I used to get either failure to feed, or failure to extract. Replaced it with a metal magazine and when I shot hollowpoint I used premium and and only shot fmj with the cheap stuff. Seemed to work for a while but I ended up selling the rifle. Nvm I just looked at that last pic and it definitely looks like your extractor is missing. Wow.

It is not missing, I just looked at the gun. Its pushed in or something. Heres a picture.
I tried pushing it back but the spring keeps it in the position. The metal is a pair of pliers i put in front of the bolt to hold it open.imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1390277675.657976.jpg

how new is it and did you buy it new?

if you bought it new, might call Remington and see if it's still under warranty.
