I think I've seen that the "new"SAAs are priced around $1700(+ or -) and I guess this depends on the finish,options etc. I have not even seen one,let me make that clear.
If you are sincere in "shooting it",the gun will loose a great deal of value to the collectors,or "speculators", as I prefer to label them; as first purchaser,you will bear the loss,if you decide to sell it "soon. While you can order what you want,if Colt offers it,IMO you would be better off buying a "proven" Second Generation for approximately the same price,that should be in the 95% range,at least, for $1700 or so.It will already be "shot and turned" and the value will only rise if kept nice.
