Just to dispute the previously accepted answer (slightly), if I remember the pipes when removed from the car are connected to form the crutches used by the Jackal in disguise, and these also hold the rifle parts, so technically the answer is crutches.
They are part of his custom made gun/rifle he is hiding under the alfa romeo car
