Operation question

Years ago, slides were "pinned" so as not to function during suppressed operation.

How would this affect chamber pressure when used on a 45 ACP? Alloy slides?

Very little if at all.
The bullet has left the barrel and pressure has already started to drop before the barrel is ever unlocked.

Not sure about how far technology has come, but the slide never moved on any suppressed 1911 I've ever fired due to the suppressor's mass.
