Ruger started putting transfer bars in all of their single action revolvers in 1973. Iver Johnson, however, patented the transfer bar design and was installing them in their Safety Automatic revolvers almost 80 years before Ruger, in 1875.

After reading the OP's post, I saw that he owns other guns with exposed hammers. I don't own a Henry so can't comment directly on the rifle. I do own a couple lever actions by other manufacturers. I noticed you added a hammer spur to yours. If that still doesn't make you feel comfortable with gun, you might consider selling it and getting something else that works better for you.
