Thanks for the info but its the ejector not the extractor. If you could give info on ejector. Front leg broken inside of lower.Welcome aboard from another PT 1911 afcionado! I have about 8,000 rounds through mine and your post is a good reminder that I really need to address the spare replacement extractor issue. I intend to buy a Wilson Bulletproof extractor and put it in myself. From the videos I've see, it should be that hard of an install. You could call Taurus and see what they say about replacing your broken one.
Good luck with yours.
Regarding the question of whether it's common or not, from what I've read some will go 10,000 rounds and more, others just up and die without warning at lower numbers. I also know that their demise can be quickly hastened by dropping in a round through the ejector port and sending the slide home over the top of it. This is due to the design of the pistol which is meant to strip the round off the top of the magazine, letting the extractor receive the rim as it slides up underneath. To load through the ejector port forces the extractor over the edge of the rim in a strictly lateral motion.
Are you talking about the ejector pin, part 4.9 or the ejector, 4.14, in the PT-1911 parts list in the manual?Thanks for the info but its the ejector not the extractor. If you could give info on ejector. Front leg broken inside of lower.

No leg??Mine just broke on my last range trip. I was going to replace mine but after shopping around, alot of them you see don't even have a leg. So I removed it and filed it to match one on midway usa site. Cycling by hand it still works good. I'm guessing it just won't throw the brass as far.
AHHH!! Gotcha!!I guess leg is not the right word. The tip broke and I filed it so it would match this. Colt Ejector 1911 Government Colt Gold Cup 45 ACP SS
