Hi everyone.
I am shooting recurve archery, but i've bought compound bow recently and i'm not sure if i stay in the same division. So i thought about purchasing a new sight with 10-32 thread, but use it with compound scope without lens. Will it be okay with F.I.T.A. regulation?

Yes. So long as there is no magnification. There are recurve "scopes" that have a lens but zero magnification.

If using a compound scope on a recurve, you will also need to remove the level, and it cannot exceed 2cm in length from archer forward. Here are the World Archery (formerly FITA) rules.

11.1.5.1.

It shall not incorporate a prism, magnifying lens/lenses, or any magnifying device, levelling, electric or electronic devices, nor shall it provide for more than one sighting point.
11.1.5.2.

The overall length of the sighting circle or point (hood, tunnel or tube, sighting pin or other corresponding extended component) shall not exceed 2cm in the line of vision of the athlete. Long fiber optic pins must bend after 2cm with the opposite end of the fiber optic pin outside the athlete’s line of vision.

Aren't there a few recurve apertures with 10-32 threads?

Steve
Not many. I make my own and I use 10-32 threads and I ordered a few from Barry with 10-32's because that's the size my Sure-loc aperture holders were tapped for.

I guess every "recurve" aperture I've seen is 8-32.
