Default Bolt carrier and hammer in AK

So I am wondering why there is so much interference between the carrier and the hammer when charging the gun. The gun operates 100% and has had zero malfunctions in the first 500 rounds so I don't want to mess that up.

But it seems to me it would be easier to rack the gun if there wasn't so much interference. Even when the hammer is already cocked the carrier depresses it over 1/8". What is the purpose? It seems to me the hammer is sitting a little high and things would be a lot smoother if there was less interference.

Then again everything is in their intended location so unless the Tapco trigger group sits higher than stock this must be how the rifle is meant to operate?
Thanks for any insight from the experts. I am trying to learn and get things as smooth as possible.
