Default broken extractors

Do 1917s have a problem with wreak extractors? I am rereading Bataan our last ditch. In the book it states that the 11 inf had 550 rifles with broken extractors so troops were given a piece of bamboo to use like a ramrod and run it down the barrel and push the shell out after each shot. I assume he was talking about the 1917 because that is what the PI army used. the scouts and American troops had M1s the air force and support troops 1903s
