broke an extractor.

Well out shooting this weekend with a group of folks, finally broke an (early) extractor. She just snapped right at the bottom of the circle portion of it. A few of the casings became hard to extract(barrel/chamber was fouled) and then needed a ramrod for the rest. I guess the reason I'm writing this is to let folks know a bit more. I also began having problems closing the breech block and needed something to assist the breech thumb latch to get closed.. like a block of wood. Got a pretty good gash on my wrist from Hitting it harder to get it to close and it slipped on me. I wonder if "Custer" men had some of this same issue? Anyhow, had fired over 100 rounds that day in it without cleaning to see what it could handle.. and found out.
