    If it used to work, it could be a dirty chamber.  The best way to fix it would be to break it MORE by cutting the recoil spring.

    The extractor is worn out cause i can manually extract by charging it

    If you've run a lot of steel case ammo thru the weapon the extractor is probably worn out.
