Do any of you have this Hitachi drywall screw gun? *LINK*

Keith Newton
Ive gone through 3 Senco collated screw guns over the years, and never was very satisfied with them so saw this factory reconditioned one very cheap so thought I'd give it a try. It didn't come with a manual so rather than screw something up thought I'd ask "The Pros" here.

It came with a #2 Phillips bit, but I'm going to need it with a square drive soon. Its easy to remove the magazine by simply loosening a wing screw. But the bit which has a little D-ring around it doesn't have any obvious release, and I've pulled about ~50# to no avail. What am I missing? Is the ring there to lever against with a straight screwdriver?

Also, there is 5" of bit sticking out, but most of the bits I see online with the ring are 7".
