Your Colt could be your extractor is worn out/broken, needs tuning, your ejector is broken, or I'd say too much spring and the spring isn't letting the gun cycle all the way through.

Cycle the Colt by hand does it extract and eject the case?

Inspect the hook on the extractor is it chipped or broken?

Inspect the ejector I believe the ejector should be extended.

It would seem unlikely a worn spring would cause the problem on your SA. Unload it first. Take the barrel bushing out and remove the spring does it cycle freely now? Weather it does or doesn't continue to field strip it and inpsect put it back together without cleaning maybe just a bit of lube then cycle it by hand.

Then take it apart clean and relube and try it.

Let us know what it was.

Good luck
