According to IMFDB, Indy was originally envisioned as carrying a 1911, but the prop technology of the time did not allow reliable blank cycling in the .45 1911.

Since then, several movies and TV shows that used 1911s snuck in 9mm versions, though they often said they were .45s.

On a related topic, this is why the producers had Gary Cooper carry a captured Luger P08, rather than the correct 1911, in Sergeant York.
