Noticed the pin walked out about .10" after the last short outing. I have 1K rounds on it overall. I tapped it back in. Is this common? It has never happened with my P30, which does retain the mainspring differently though.

Not a big deal, I've had magazine release pins walk in the past. Just tap it back and if it becomes a problem, it's a simple fix.

I just ordered a few more of those roll pins. If it comes out again, I will replace the pin and see if that solves it.

Never take a hammer to any of the roll pins that go through plastic (grip and mag release). You can drive the pin right through the plastic, making either a new hole or widening the existing hole. This might allow the pins to walk with use and essentially ruins the frame.

The only two pins on a P2000 that require a hammer are those in the slide (extractor/firing pin retainer).

Sir, How do we remove/reinstall the mag release pin and mainspring pin without using a hammer?

I'm not understanding what you're trying to say here. Are you saying not to force a pin by clobbering it with a hammer? That should be true no matter what. Otherwise, I see no difference between a couple of light taps with a small hammer versus pushing hard by hand.

You can start the pins by hand. I always use a 3/32 roll pin specific punch and ensure that the plastic parts are held tightly in position.
You can do anything wrong if you try hard enough.....
For the record, I had never touched the pin that was walking, so if something was messed up, it came that way from HK.

I have a P2000sk and the method that I have always used is to "forcefully" push up on the backstrap, and then the pin can be pushed in, or out by hand with the punch or other pushing tool.

HK recommends replacing the backstrap roll-pin every time it is removed. I ordered a few of them from HKParts.net just to have them around...commonly replaced part. -A
