120 volt to 12 volt adapter

Anyone know of a reliable 120v to 12v screw in adapter for LV MR 16 lamp.

so you want to find an adapter that screws into a 120V medium base lamp socket, that contains an electronic low voltage transformer (actually a driver as you want it for LED lamps and these typically will not perform well with a standard ELV transformer), and has a Gu5.3 BiPin socket for an MR16 lamp on the other end? That animal does not exist.

You have to make the whole fixture low voltage (obviously). I have used these in the past on some old 120 path lights. They worked great.
