At smaller sizes it tends to not have enough structural strength to prevent breakage. Most plumbing applications move to poly tubing for ice makers and such that need small pipe. 1/4 inch brass or iron is common enough and is tough enough to not snap off when bent a little.

Yep 1/2" is the smallest standard PVC size used in standard plumbing. Go with copper or brass.

What purpose did you have in mind for 1/4" PVC?

if you happen to be doing something airsoft related, you can get barrels for fairly cheap online, or use 1/4" brakeline

You will have a much easier time finding the brakeline, and it works just fine, though odviously inferior to an actual airsoft barrel.

Thanks to the internet, I know everything about everything exept how to actually do anything.
