Can I install a different (0.050 gauge) bar and chain (7/32)?

I'm tired of the specialized and hard to find stock bar and chain on my CS1600 (16")... finding 4.5mm files/guides is a nuisance, and everything is made for 0.050 gauge bars and 7/32 chains (including all of my sharpening tools from my gas chainsaw). Would there be any issue with replacing the stock bar/chain with similar Oregon products but in the more common specs?
