how should a phantom behave w/o gas

hey guys, just received my first phantom and I'm pretty psyched about it. Haven't had a chance to get out with it yet but I had a quick question. So I'm used to snipers and am curious how a phantom should feel when I try to pump it w/o gas? Right now it just pumps back and then forward again with no sniper-type sear catching the hammer feel and the trigger pretty much does't do aything when pulled. So is this typical for a phantom?

Thanks for the help and sorry about the newby question. I'll probably grab some 12g's this weekend and try it out with gas but was just curious what I should expect.

It only catches with gas in it.

It should feel like it almost wants to catch - but does not. You can get a Phantom to catch without gas - by putting the heaviest valve spring in it you can find - but stock it will not catch.

It needs the pressure of the co2 to hold the valve closed so the hammer can grab the carrier. Otherwise the mainspring pushes the hammer which pushes the valve stem open.
