While they preferred handguns chambered in 9mm or .380, the Germans were known to re-issue captured handguns such as Webleys and 1911's to certain troops like cooks, doctors, mechanics, and others who didn't shoot for a living. It is possible, I suppose, that the gun could've been a captured U.S. issue Victory model or British lend-lease gun that was re-issued, but that's doubtful.
