I think it varies by "era" of our history....

a. Single Action revolvers certainly have their era ...and I still enjoy them a lot. The old Colt's have a solid place...and new companies like Freedom Arms certainly deserve a nod...

b. 1911 ...for the 20th and into the 21st century.../ its popularity may be as strong as ever now.../ and today from so many mfg's and in so many calibers.

c. The "N" frame S&W revolvers....model 27's & 28's in .357 mag / model 29's in .44 mag...for a majority of the 20th century and into the 21st century../Colt Python probably deserves at least an honarable mention as well.
I don't know how you can pick just one to be "America's sidearm" ...without some perspective of the era involved...or at least I can't / I own several of each - and day to day, I can't pick just one favorite let alone one gun as "America's sidearm"...
