Not necessarily, there have been successful external extractor offerings by several companies.

S&W is very successful with theirs being reliable, as are some others, including the Wilson EDC line, even with the limited few that broke due to over-hardening (presumably). I doubt Kimber ever figured out what the problem was, as they abandoned their external extractor attempt before they figured out the necessary geometry change.
