Buzz Bee Panthers - normal or a batch of lemons?

So I wanted to ask if this was a normal behavior with no darts loaded, or if the blaster should really "pop" like the 2K's I've known and loved for so long. Can anyone comment on this?

Thanks for the quick answer Buffdaddy! Maybe I can shoot you with it the next time you come over for Foam in the Fort. (Or if I ever make it over to a Columbus war!)

The dart pushes the disk type object down along the peg which exposes the air hole that shoots the dart out. If the disk is not depressed, no air gets released out the barrel. In effect, it is supressed. Which is why it seems quiet.
It would be like plugging the barrel of a springer that has an 85% seal. The plunger head doesn't slam into the end of the plunger tube so there's no(to very little) sound. The air leaks out eventually, but the air pressure cushions the plunger head to rest.
When the air restrictor and peg are removed, there is quite the noticeable "POP" that you're looking for.
