Default Newbie sight question troy iron sights on an Adams arms upper

I have an Adams arms piston upper with a troy front flip up with trit. I have the sight mounted on the gas block. I shot it and was sighting in the aimpoint and there was a lot of spot build up on the sight to the point I couldn't see the trit dot anymore. What should I do to correct this. I bought the troy because it is metal so I could mount it on the gas block. What are most people doing? Hard to see but the trit is still not completely clean and isn't as bright in the dark now. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Not run a piston system. The point of the piston system is to vent the gasses at the block, and not back into the receiver.

Can't win'em all bud.

Your gas block will vent the excess gas at the block and cause fouling around the handguard, block, and sight.

Does it still glow?

Yes it still glows. I had to clean the soot off of it

I guess I was wondering if there is any way to set this up to prevent my sight from getting dirtied up. I moved it back onto the rail but not super juiced about it.

It'll help a little bit. You'll just have fouling on the front of it instead, but not on the back where the tritium is.

I have a Tritium tip on my A2 style FSB. I like them. Not much you can do, gasses will vent in that spot. I'd strongly suggest moving your sight all the way forward, longer sight radius is better. Just clean the tip now & then & don't overthink it. Worry about problems like FTF/FTE etc. Shoot & enjoy it!!!
