Revolvers

Webley revolvers

Webley Revolvers are seen in hands of various characters. A Webley is the murder weapon in "Fifty Ships" (S2E1). Both Webley .38 Mk IV and Webley .455 Mk VI are used. It's not always possible to determine exactly what model is used.

Webley Mk IV - .38 S&W
Webley Mk. VI - .455 Webley

...but when the murder is shown, the revolver looks more like a Webley .38 Mk IV. Here it is hold by Richard Hunter.
And now Howard Paige (Henry Goodman) holds the revolver.
Captain Devlin (Richard Wills-Cotton) holds a Webley in "War Games" (S2E3).
James Collier (Nicholas Farrell) holds Frank Vaudrey (Richard Hope) at gunpoint in "The Funk Hole" (S2E4).
James Collier's Webley is .455 Mk VI.

Colt New Service

A Colt New Service is used by Simon Walker (Laurence Fox) in "War Games" (S2E3). Its shape allows to make a guess that it is a British-used revolver in .455 Webley.

Pistols

M1911-style

An M1911-style pistol is carried by a Secret Service agent John Bishop (Guy Henry) in "Fifty Ships" (S2E1). This pistol seems to have a shorter barrel than a standard M1911, like the Colt Commander, but this could be a mere optical illusion.

John Bishop draws his pistol.

M1911A1

An M1911A1 pistol is used by Fred Pierce (Bill Davey) in "Among the Few" (S2E2).

World War II Colt M1911A1 Pistol - .45 ACP. This was an issued U.S. Army pistol with parkerized finish, thus the official designation of M1911A1
