I am going to suggest a manufacture's defect in metallurgy. On brand new M1As, some break their extractors after three or four rounds. On the M14 website they have a list of parts you need to replace with USGI parts just to make your $2,000 rifle function.

I think the metal they used in yours may have just plain worn away. Such is life in today's gun world where parts are made out of melted down beer cans. It sounds like something in your upper may have merely worn away.
