Kimber Custom TLE/RL II FTE

My Custom TLE/RL II fails to extract the last spent cartridge. I use Wilson Combat 1911 Magazine, .45 ACP, Full-Size, 8 Round, Standard Base Pad x 4 mags and use factory ammo from Federal American Eagle FHJ 230 grain. When it happened for the first time, I was able to drop the mag and rack the slice to get the spent cartridge out. However, on the second and third time, the cartridge got stock between the top of the mag and the throat. I could not drop the mag or rack the slide. I ended up taking out the cartridge with some tools. Any thoughts?

I can't say - the pistol came with 4 Wilson Combat mags when I purchased - no factory mag.

One more thing, after the initial FTE, I set the mag aside, but it happened with other mags.
