Wilson fires the M1917. Note that there are two errors in this scene, the first being that there are no bullets in the gun (Shown clearly above) and one of the shots is unsynchronized with the sound effect.

Gatsby's bodyguard (John Devlin) is show carrying a revolver in a shoulder holster. Since he never draws it, it is impossible to make a proper ID.

This is the only shot of the revolver we see.
