Where to find certain fitting?

I need what I understand is called, a 3/4" X 1/2" 90 degree drop ear elbow/reducer.

to be sure I describe it correctly, I have 3/4" copper pipe for a shower that I need to reduce down to 1/2" pipe thread AND at the same time, turn 90 degrees and I want it to have the little "wings" on it so I can screw it to a support.

Now, before anyone tells me I can just reduce the 3/4" pipe to 1/2" and then blah blah blah..

I KNOW that. I specifically do NOT want to do it that way since the "right" part is made.

Seems just no one carries it

Any thoughts/knowledge as to where I can obtain FIVE of them boogers?

Okay.

> before anyone tells me I can just reduce the 3/4" pipe to 1/2" and then
use a regular lug ell instead of a reducing lug ell.

That is probably the cheapest way.

Are you willing to pay like $60 for five of these rare beauties and wait a while for delivery?
If so, I can tell you where to order them on the Internet or to whom to make a telephone call.

You can get straight 3/4" drop-eared 90s (copper x IPS). You could use one of those with a 3/4" x 1/2" brass face bushing, it would be pretty close.
