With the standard front sight, the 'wings' on the sides of the post should be totally ignored when aiming, use only the top of the post as aiming reference.
The wings are there only to protect the post and are not involved in aiming.
41 clicks would place the rear aperture almost all the way up - is that what is happening for you?
The typical sight setting for 200 yards is about 10-14 clicks up from bottom.
Needing 41 clicks would mean either the front post is much too tall, barrel is bent, barrel does not fit the receiver properly, or something else...
That is my question.
Also important is what type of sight picture are you using?
With a 6 o'clock hold, the aiming black should be about 1.5 inch diameter at 25 y/m.
With a POI = POA hold, use as small an aiming black as you can see clearly.
6'o'clock is what I use.

I watch the sight, it moves up with each click. I've been running it up for each trip to the range since I've had it.Is the rear sight moving when you crank it up? Whatever the problem is, it should be glaringly obvious. What are you shooting for ammo? Is your gas plug loose? Ill bet that's why this is happening, or the ammo is crap. Either that or the sight is not moving when you crank it up, but you would notice that, right?
