The VEPR isnt a stock, its a brand of AK built off of RPK receivers. You MIGHT be able to fit a VEPR stock to your gun, but no guarantees since they are an entirely different receiver type to a regular AK.
If your AK has side rails, you can mount a scope via the normal AK side rail system. Otherwise you can buy a dust cover with a built-in weaver rail. Obviously the dust cover mount wont be as sturdy as a side rail bolted into the receiver.
Gratuitous AK pic, ignore the bolt action:

Heres one I just sold.......excellent shooting gun.
The dust cover mounts wont hold a zero very well. But, there isnt much else out there for the price. Other options would be an ultimak mount that replaces the gas tube. They're just shy of $100. Or, you could buy an optics rail and mount it to your receiver. I was getting ready to do that very thing, but i sold my MAK. I think you can get a rail kit for like $40, but you have to drill a couple holes in your receiver. Once its done though you can mount any russian pattern AK sight.
Edit: i really wasnt into ak-47 type guns before but it has really grown one me
Its an addiction. Seriously. I started looking at AKs around new years and i'm $1700 in since then.
