The deadlifts ruined my grip, I have a feeling without the deadlifts I'd have managed more chins. Although that's my PB for chins, I've not marked it as improvement, because my last record was 6/5/3 nearly a MONTH ago. 2 rep improvement in a month! I am much heavier now, but that's hardly an excuse.
I've said this before, but don't let the pull/chin-ups get you down. It's such a slow progress with these exercises.

Have you thought about doing light barbell complexes instead?
