I used a dremel to grind the bottom of the second hook where it hit the receiver. I am from the school of you can remove metal but don't want to thing about having to add metal, so I ground a little off the bottom of the hook, installed in SAR-1, removed some more, and continued until it cleared. At first I was expecting to run out of metal, but there was enough left that I am not having any issues. Just kept looking at where it hit the receiver and removed metal where it was contacting.
Took off the scope and receiver cover. If you look at your double hook trigger and compare to the right hook of mine you should be able to see where I cut it down.
Unfortunately I would have to take the SAR apart to get the trigger out for a better picture. Sorry, but I wouldn't even do that for ATF.
Nice to see SAR-1s getting respect. My first AK was a SAR-1, its in E. German chocolate brown plastic with a blue E. German sling. One of my all time favorite AKs and a real workhorse, at least (and this is a conservative estimate) 20 thousand rounds through it. Still a great rifle.

Man, that's a good looking rifle...
