Is the gun Fail To Eject random?

Is the casing staying "fully" in the chamber?
Extractor... Look at 1... The extractor hook should "sping" back and forth with slight pressure towards the outside of the slide... It "snaps" over the casing rim when the slide closes, then drags the spent casing from the chamber when the slide opens...

Is the casing "clearing" the chamber, but no spinning out of the ejection port?
Ejector... Look at 2... The spent casing hits the ejector as the extractor is pulling the spent casing towards the rear of the pistol... this causes the casing to pivot from the extractor hook, spining the casing out of the ejection port and clear the breech for the next round...
