Above advice is good. My guess is that your colt likely needs more extractor tension. Odds are good that the extractor itself is OK - just needs a tweak. Polish it up and check tension and try again.

Sometimes a lot of crud under the extractor can cause the same thing. The case is dropping out of the extractor hook before ejection can take place.

Hard to tell from your description what is wrong with your Springfield. If it is still the original spring it is time to replace it anyway. Take it apart and look it over really good. You can often see unusual wear marks from something binding.
