    Your spent casings should be falling somewhere between two and three o'clock and landing about the same distance from you each round fired. You might need the extractor tension adjusted, or the extractor is "clocking".

    Easy fix for a pistol smith or, Do it yourself. http://forum.m1911.org/forums.php

    I would also recommend the Wilson stainless steel "Bulletproof" extractor if it needs to be replaced.

    Most likely the extractor clocking (rotating) a bit and/or improper tension.
