Why not pick up something aftermarket? The Ruger handle is so short and there are so many nice ones available. I've used several of the PC Ti handles and like them a lot. Here are some others that I have used.

I don't know if it is the best way, but I used a Dremel to remove the two humps on the rod that keep the handle captive.

You can grind the staking off or if you are good with a hammer and anvil flatten it out. I did just what you want on a Super Stock, an International and a trainer so I could maintain the OEM look. I have many other styles of cocking handles on my herd, some OEM, Kidd, TI, Power Custom, R/T, you get the picture.

when I used Ruger charging handles, I preferred the size of the Magnum handles


unfortunately, I don't think you can get them from Ruger anymore
