There is a hack for that. If you take a knife and cut the plastic away from your charging handle...you'll find a stock, round charging handle.

Kel Tec uses a round, metal charging handle as the base when injection molding the square handle.
Cool, huh?

Or go to the Kel Tec website and order a round one.

I decided that the best option is actually a hybrid. I cut away some of the plastic of the "new" handle, so it has a shape resembling an AK handle, but retains the case deflector. This way it continues to work like the "new" handle, but allows to grab it even easier than the original round handle.

Just so you know, if you call KelTec and explain you have a C model and that you had FTE's probably caused by the charging handle, they replace it with the old model.

I emailed and I received the replacement within a week.

Just to add to my post above re. stock numbers, the old round handle is apparently #122 and the new "deflector" handle is #422 at the factory. Unfortunately, the web store feels it appropriate to substitute at will.
