Sounds like you might have some crud under it. I'd detail strip the slide and clean up under the extractor and see if that clears up the problem. Also, make sure you've got the upgraded extractor with debris channel cut into it.

I agree, sounds like a good cleaning may be in order.

Do you think its possible for the spring or plastic buffer to be sticking for some reason?
I wouldn't think so. Go ahead and strip your upper. I think once you do you may find your problem.

There may something wrong with the Extractor Depressor Plunger(EDP) assembly, perhaps the spring loaded bearing is not installed, the spring is weak or broken, or there's some obstruction in the EDP channel. If the EDP assembly looks normal, try sliding the assembly back and forth through the channel to make sure it slides freely. My G27's EDP channel was cut pretty poorly but it doesn't bind the assembly.

If the EDP assembly and channel appear fine, it's most likely that the extractor is to blame. Glock's newest extractors can be oversized and not move freely enough in the slide, trying a brand new extractor should tell you if that's the problem.
