Pistol? No such animal in an engine. If you mean piston I can't see how they could tell you that without tearing the engine down. If a piston has broken usually it will damage a cylinder wall. Unless the engine is completely torn down and the cylinders are re-machined and fitted with new oversize ones, no repair is going to work.(not correctly)
If you have a bad set of rings or a bad wrist-pin, that can be done but generally that is still expensive.
Likely your best solution would be a good scrapyard engine or a rebuilt one.
Before going further though you should get a second opinion from another good shop. Since being online prevents anyone from looking at or doing the appropriate tests, that is something you need to have done.
