Would it not have been a Colt 1911A1 automatic pistol?

It was rare for US serviceman to use revolvers (General Patton being one of those exceptions)

Its quite easy to make a holstered pistol from plastic card

 

Actually in the USN during WW2 revolvers were very common as the service bought large quantities of military S&W .38 Special Model 10. These were the type most widely used by pilots and aircrews during the war, much more common than the 1911.

These guns however were mostly received from 1942 on, meaning that for an F3F they would not be the right choice

A little off subject, but I have a S7W .38 Special Model 10!  I was really wanting to get a Model 15 which is what we used when I was an Air Force cop, but I feel more in control shooting the Model 10 than I ever did with the Model 15.

Later,

Dave

Question; are you shure its a standard revolver and not a Very Light pistol?

Can you post a link to the photo?

Because I'm interested/intrigued

 

and again, its dead easy to scratch make a holstered pistol out of plastic card

I think you're right!

Looks too flat to be a revolver.
