Yeah I think this rumor is mostly 1911 derived.
If you think about it, the 1911 slide (and any semiauto slide/bolt) is designed to move forward with enough momentum to gather up a heavyish cartridge from a tight magazine, and push it firmly into the chamber. That's a lot of mass to move and position, so the slide is sprung such that it will do it reliably. Removing that mass from the equation means that the slide is banging home with much more force than it's designed to.
That said, most quality equipment would be able to handle it just fine, but it is undoubtedly harder on the gun.
