No experience with the Weaver Commander scope but I do have 5 of the Classic V series and at last purchase they (V series) were still made in Japan.
I do have a Nikon Monarch that was made in the Phillpines and it is a good scope. I guess I am just saying, not sure it matters much, just stay away from the made in China stuff.
Weaver makes a good scope and I think their warranty is good. Don't know about their costumer service. Haven't had to use it.
If you buy a Weaver Commander let us know what you think about it.
