The phantom valve is operated as such: Front portion is pushed back by the pump handle catching the the sear on the middle portion, as you pull the pump handle to its forward position its brings both front portions of the valve forward with it. When the trigger is pulled it releases the middle portion which is pushed back and actuates the valve thus firing a shot.
The automag valve is operated as such: The bolt is held back against the valve by the mags sear which is located in the rail, when the trigger is pulled the sear releases the bolt and pushes the valves on/off. The bolt is pushed forward by the valve thus firing the shot and then the spring on the bolt returns the bolt back against the valve which is again caught by the sear.

Looking at the exterior appearance of the valves, I can see how you thought that, but the two are very, very different designs.
